ABOUT THE MUSEUM
Founded in 1912, the Delaware Art Museum is a primary cultural and arts institution in the state. Our mission is to generate creative energy that sustains, enriches, empowers, and inspires by connecting people to art. The Museum meets its mission through offering diverse exhibitions, art education programming, special events, and 100+ programs, from tours and art classes to workshops and community days, to nearly 80,000 people each year.

In 2017, the Museum devised a three-year strategic plan to become a welcoming and inclusive, civically-engaged, vital hub that acts as a catalyst for change in our community. To that end, we’ve partnered with the community to develop programming ranging from an annual writing conference to the development of events and exhibitions commemorating the 50th anniversary of a public disturbance that led to the nine-month occupation of the City of Wilmington—the longest peacetime occupation in US history. We are committed to being agents of change, striving to diversify our collection to combat the historical underrepresentation of women and people of color in museums’ collections. We are forward-looking and community focused. We are looking for applicants with the same spirit and who embrace the Museum’s core values: Art at Our Core, Commitment to Community, Steward Public Trust, Make Work Meaningful, Embrace Innovation and Experimentation.
