The Grand Galleries are a great opportunity for area artists to gain more exposure as well as offer enrichment and enjoyment to patrons, performing artists, artistic partners and staff.

The Grand is actively seeking artists to exhibit their work during the coming year. Along with the opportunity to show for the month, artists will also take part in the City of Wilmington's Art on the Town, also known as the "Art Loop" on first Fridays.

May Exhibit: Pacem in Terris, “Traveling Peace Exhibition”

Pacem in Terris is a grassroots, nonpartisan, interfaith, member-supported peace and justice non-profit organization based in Wilmington that is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. It works collaboratively with people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and professions to spread, deepen, and enrich peace in the world, nation and neighborhood.

Last year, Pacem in Terris invited local youth to create art that is a vision of peace— that answered the question, “What does peace look like?” and “What does the world that you want to live in look like?”   Over two hundred and fifty students from 16 schools and community organizations submitted inspiring work that was exhibited for nine days at The Delaware Contemporary, September 18-26, during PeaceWeek Delaware.

Through a generous grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, the Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Exhibition is now traveling through Delaware. For more information on the show see the Youth Peace Art website.
