The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts was created in 1979 by a group of artists who believed that a small industrial city on the East Coast could and should support contemporary art and artists. In addition to its curated solo and group exhibitions, the DCCA remains committed to providing artist members with solo exhibition opportunities in its changing galleries. A non-collecting museum housed in an industrial building that was previously a railroad car factory and sited in the growing Riverfront area in Wilmington, the DCCA functions as a kunsthalle for temporary exhibitions. Hundreds of artist members have shown new bodies of work made specifically for their solo shows at the DCCA as well as site-specific installations.
The proverbial white cube at the DCCA lends itself to the varieties of artistic vision, experimentation, engagement, and impetus from emerging, mid-career, and established artists. Artists working in all media are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to contribute to the DCCA efforts towards a widened, deepened, and strengthened forum for new ideas and new art.
