The Delaware College of Art and Design was founded in 1997 through a creative partnership between New York City's Pratt Institute and the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C., and is Delaware's first and only professional art and design college. Since its founding, DCAD has graduated more than 1,000 developing artists and designers while serving as an anchor institution for the redevelopment of downtown Wilmington.

The College is celebrating its 20 years in downtown Wilmington throughout 2017. The highlight of this observance will be the DCAD Art Auction and Scholarship Gala, which will be held at 600 N. Market St. on October 7.
