Delaware is home to a fair share of small towns and villages. Delaware Public Media contributor Larry Nagengast examines how they survive and thrive despite their size.

Horace Pippin was one of the first African American painters to earn national recognition in his lifetime. Nearly 70 years after his death, Pippin's art still resonates.  In our Arts Playlist, we travel to the Brandywine River Museum of Art for a preview of their new exhibit, " Horace Pippin, The Way I See It."

In 1938, the Rehoboth Art League was founded in a two-room studio, formerly the wing of an 18th-century farmhouse, nestled in pastoral Henlopen Acres, a sleepy community on the edge of Rehoboth Beach. Today, the RAL is a 4-acre wooded oasis surrounded by upscale homes in a suburban setting. But it’s no longer limited to its birthplace.

When the summer season kicks off on Memorial Day, tourists driving on Route 9 toward Five Points will see the banner for the RAL Studios, the first long-term satellite location for the 77-year-old arts organization.
