They shared iPhone photo techniques for teachers to share with their students. So gratifying to connect local talent for public benefit! ...

I love these, my son’s teacher does these as a break during the day and sometimes I secretly participate 😂

Ha! Oh god... don’t get me started Jamie!

A new OUTDOOR exhibit opened at The Delaware Contemporary! If you need a new location to get your art fix, a walk down the riverfront afterwards wouldn’t be remiss either!

(All social distancing requirements and COVID precautions should be taken for your health and safety.)

The Delaware Contemporary
ON VIEW through November 30, 2020

In three monumental outdoor banners commissioned by The Delaware Contemporary for the debut of its Platform Gallery, Theresa Chromati has created exuberant and bold visions of female bodies. The psychological charge of Chromati’s beings is intense. Taken together the three banners describe, in the artist’s words, an “ambiguous journey” as a central figure attains “balance and then power.”

Not comfortable indoor with other people yet. Virus is not controlled and our contact tracing is not good. But, I’m interested in outside events.

Too soon. I'd think about outdoors, though.

I'd love to attendan outdoor event.

No, this could be done via zoom. Not the best but I think ppl would feel safer.

I avoid indoor spaces

For those who were interested in an outdoor event, we have found a location and have scheduled a pop up sketch morning! See more details here: facebook.com/events/s/outdoor-sketch-morning-at-rock/1416604835198667/?ti=icl

#sundayfunday #artiseverywhere
If you need a little creative boost and some fresh air, you can visit the Copeland Sculpture Garden at the Delaware Art Museum featuring 9 acres of art including the kinetic sculpture "Three Rectangles Horizontal Jointed Gyratory III" by George Rickey, which moves in the wind combining both art and science so it almost never looks the same. You can also walk the labyrinth in the Anthony N. Fusco Reservoir.

See more information here: www.delart.org/collections/copeland-sculpture-garden/
Special note from the Museum: Even the lightest touch can damage a work of art. Please do not touch or climb on the art or outside sculptures. Be careful to keep your hands, bags, bodies and other people accompanying you a safe distance from the artwork. Your great-great-grandchildren will thank you.
