Take I-95 to exit 6 (Martin Luther King Blvd.). Turn right onto Madison, The Delaware Contemporary is on the left at intersection of Madison and West.

Come muse at the creativity revealed at The Delaware Contemporary, one of the leading contemporary visual arts organizations in the country. The building’s revolutionary design, once a railroad passenger car factory, centered on the convergence of two indoor “streets” with clusters of galleries rising beneath huge industrial trusses.

Experience this non-collective space that offers visitors a unique and varied experience including:

• A comfortable cyber cafe located near a dramatic, sky-lit lobby
• Seven exhibition galleries of curated artwork from local, regional, and international artists
• Thirty artists studios on-site (Sponsored by Bank One)
• Symposia, lectures and video screenings in a one hundred-seat lecture hall
• Educational programs and workshops
• Museum gift shop
