DCAD's Annual Appeal finished the fiscal year strong, breaking a new record for the highest total amount raised in the past 10 years with $58,390 in contributions.

Delaware Division of the Arts to support 2013 Drawing Marathon
In March 2013, DCAD will host its Ninth Drawing Marathon in the Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery. Grant funding from the Delaware Division of the Arts will help offset marketing and operational costs. The annual Drawing Marathon is based on the concept of the well-known drawing marathon offered by the prestigious New York Studio School, which posits that drawing is the basis of understanding one's experience in the world. The event, which offers attendees the opportunity to draw, paint, and/or sculpt from a variety of live models in various vignettes provides a venue for artists to create quick, timed sketches or, for the committed, a chance to finish an entire painting in one day.
DCAD's Design INQB8 Office receives state grant
The College's in-house design hub, which was founded as a response to the overwhelming amount of requests that DCAD receives for design services from the community, has received an operational grant from the State for the coming year. The INQB8 Design Group is currently staffed by Shawn Hall (Graphic Design, 2009) and overseen by John Breakey, Area Coordinator of Graphic Design. Recent accomplishments of this design team includes the creation of the logo for the Council of Chief Justices 2012 Annual Meeting, attended by Vice President Joe Biden; a species identification brochure for the Delaware Nature Society; and, among other projects, a logo for Mainstreet Wilimington/Downtown Visions.
