Once each year, the entire community comes together at the Biggs Museum to celebrate arts, history and culture in an elegant and unique setting. Held on the campus of the state capitol, the Biggs Gala is always highly anticipated and attracts more than 350 leaders in government, business and our nonprofit community – all of whom are enthusiastic supporters of our key role in bringing a vibrant arts community alive in Dover. This year, the renowned work of the legendary photographer and conservationist Ansel Adams serves as a dramatic backdrop for the event.
