Restoration Plans

When restoration is complete, we plan for the house to be open to the public during regular weekend hours for gallery viewing and arts project consultation. The house would be available at other times for Artspace members. Paid membership is expected to be open to the public, in accordance with our bylaws. Fundraising activities for ongoing operations costs could also include art auctions, short-film viewing nights, annual dinners, social hours and modest, community-friendly performances.

Jester Artspace is only responsible for the interior renovations of the farmhouse. New Castle County is responsible for the additional renovations of the park. Questions about the parking plan, the walking path, or access should be directed to
