Wilmington Area

Located midway between New York City and Washington, D.C., Wilmington is a lively and welcoming environment for creative artists and designers. Playing an important role in our nation's artistic history, it is home to numerous museums, acclaimed architecture, theaters, historical landmarks and modern attractions.

The first Friday of every month brings Art on the Town where local businesses, galleries and organizations stay open late to host openings for monthly exhibits by local artists. Oftentimes, DCAD students, alumni and professors are those local artists, and DCAD participates in Art on the Town on a bi-monthly basis
