EXHIBITION OVERVIEW

 

Each year, the Biggs Museum of American Art hosts the winning artists of Delaware’s most prestigious fellowship competition in one group exhibition. The Delaware State Arts Council, in cooperation with the Delaware Division of the Arts, selects these fellowship winners from a pool of hundreds of literary, visual and performing artists at all professional levels. They are awarded cash grants, exhibition and performance opportunities and yearlong recognition. The Biggs Museum has partnered with CAMP Rehoboth and Cab Calloway School of the Arts to feature this exhibition in Sussex and New Castle Counties.
