Dedicated to the Preservation of Art Fundamentals
About Our Foundation:
Delaware Foundation for the Visual Arts was formed in 1980 with the mission of emphasizing artistic fundamentals through scholarships to Delaware students and the professional development of its Membership.
Each year we hold three art shows featuring the work of outstanding local artists. A portion of the proceeds of these shows benefits our Scholarship Fund for college bound students majoring in the arts.
This year, we have decided to hold our art show online! We hope you’ll take the opportunity to join us as we exhibit our art for the benefit of our local and future artists! Thank you!
