Art lovers living in the Residences along the waterfront in the beautiful city of Wilmington, Delaware get to enjoy picturesque views of the city day in and day out. With the ice on the river rink frozen over, the streets aglow with a wintery sheen and a multitude of first state historical sites on-hand, Wilmington definitely has much to offer the art minded visual enthusiasts of the world but each Sunday, the virtual gallery that is the city of Wilmington is further enhanced by an aspect everybody can appreciate… free art.


This exhibition is just one more example of Wilmington’s willingness to forego the dollar in order to preserve something much more precious—international art and culture.

A Look at the Free Exhibits Now on Display at the Delaware Art Museum

Each and every Sunday from here on out, residents at the Residences can head over to their cars, fire up their engines, enjoy a short (less than five minute) drive to the Delaware Art Museum, walk away from a secure, free parking space and enter into an incredibly impressive art gallery— all without spending a dime. The Delaware Art Museum features collections from:


  • Howard Pyle
  • John Sloan
  • Curator Corner and more

Their famous “Art is Everywhere” exhibit took the museum’s “Free Art” policy outdoors for even more exposure. The popularity of this particular showing suggests that a repeat exhibit might well be in the works. In the meantime, Live, Work, Play residents can observe current exhibits like Nature Morte, a carefully compiled collection of artifacts ranging from bird skeletons to skulls brought to life through captivating still shots, all the while looking forward to upcoming exhibits like “The Puzzling World of John Sloane” which is set to fall under the museum’s spotlight in early June.
