Hanging at the Biggs
Public Tile Project
Hanging at the Biggs is a permanent tile art display of images supplied by supporters of the Biggs Museum of American Art. It is similar to a commemorative brick project, but with color pictures! You can become a part of the Biggs Museum history with a customized wall tile: children’s art, family photographs, fine art, quotes, company logos, commemorative dates and much more can be scanned and printed on glass to show community pride.

Images can be printed on up to four, four-inch-square, contiguous tiles. Customized four-inch tiles are $50 each. Mail an image on disc, email your picture, scan your work at the Museum or sign up for one of the Hanging at the Biggs workshops and leave your lasting impression at the Museum’s new entrance! All proceeds to benefit “The New Biggs."

R³ Factory Exhibition
May 17 – July 20
With support from Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), the Biggs Museum presents a series of educational programs that provide valuable information as well as art-related experiences that focus on the importance of recycling. From May 17 through July 20, the Child HELP Foundation Gallery will be transformed into the R³ Factory providing a designated space for recycling-related activities. The R³ Factory will provide visitors with the opportunity to view recycling-themed art installations, participate in a variety of hands-on activities using recycled materials, and view an award winning documentary about a contemporary artist whose art is inspired by the world’s largest landfill. Four artist installations will provide visitors with the opportunity to view four different interpretations of recycling and art and participate in their completion by adding materials available in the R³ Factory.

The four artists are:

Jennifer Boland, Art Educator at Campus Community School
Lori Crawford, Professor at Delaware State University
Heidi Lowe, Professional Jewelry Artist
Mary Pauer, 2014 Delaware Division of the Arts Established Literary Fellow
