About the project

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are currently in need of new board candidates and committee members. Specific skills needed include fundraising, construction trades, arts programming and instruction.  Sign up here or email us.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to save the historic Jester Farmhouse, for local artists of all disciplines and skill levels to use as meeting, working, and gallery space. Jester Artspace, Inc. has partnered with the property owner, New Castle County, Del., to renovate the property. In turn, we will operate the house in a manner of direct benefit to the surrounding community. The Jester Farmhouse has been deemed to be of significant historic value to the people of New Castle County. It is one of the few remaining modest pre-Civil War farmsteads that were once common in Northern Delaware. The house sits amid 25.8 acres of original farmland at 2818 Grubb Road, which is among the oldest colonial-era trade routes in the mid-Atlantic U.S.
Please donate if you can. Your contributions are fully tax-deductible. Our donors receive original, limited-edition, artist-signed prints. Do something good for the arts in Brandywine Hundred and enjoy a piece of original art! If you would like us to stay in touch, you can also join our email list.

Look at this group of art teachers that came to meet us today at the farmhouse! We love our new friends at Brandywine School District! We gave them a tour of the property today, talked our project, and tossed around ideas about how we can serve them, their students and the community. Very smart group with great comments and questions. Looking forward to working with them.
