Art is Social: Dream Streets Festival
Sep 18 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This after-hours event celebrates the last weeks of the exhibition Dream Streets: Art in Wilmington 1970–1990 and Delaware’s hip hop culture. Join us for an indoor/outdoor festival featuring throwback hip-hop and breakdancing performances by Street Xpressions Arts Organization, Inc. Plus, enjoy music, tasty libations, fashion and food, live painting demos, and more!

JE (Jim) Calle, Break Dancing, July 1984. Courtesy of the Delaware Historical Society and The News Journal.

Hip hop historian, MC, and DJ Gentle Jones explains, “Delaware’s hip hop roots stretch back to the beginning of the art form. As early as the 1970s, Wilmingtonians would uprock to breakbeats played on Mount Pleasant’s 91.7 FM radio station courtesy of DJ Spoon. In the 1980s, locals known as Zim-Zam and Godfather, amongst others, laid the groundwork for Delaware MCs and DJs to feature their work on vinyl records. Artists from Delaware’s Golden Age of hip hop, including Disco Beave, Twin A & Twin B, Grand G, Cage One, Intellectuals of Rhyme, and many more, are immortalized on records.”

Event Highlights

  • Live painting demonstrations by Terrance Vann
  • Hip hop, soul, and house music by DJ Scarfo
  • Hip Hop Soul artist Richard Raw
  • Hip Hop Spoken Word with India Sage
  • Hip Hop Funk artist Tracey Quake
  • Gallery tour by Dream Streets artist and photographer Carson Zullinger

Talks & Tours — The Image of a Woman Artist: Julia Margaret Cameron’s Photographs of Marie Spartali with Joanne Lukitsh
Jan 21 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Talks & Tours -- The Image of a Woman Artist: Julia Margaret Cameron’s Photographs of Marie Spartali with Joanne Lukitsh

Snow Date: January 28, 2016

In the 1860s Marie Spartali was a sought after model for Dante Gabriel Rossetti and other painters. When Spartali posed for photographer Julia Margaret Cameron in 1868, Spartali had achieved public recognition as a painter in her own right. Joanne Lukitsh, Mass College of Art and Design Professor of the History of Art will examine whether Cameron’s photographs of Spartali can be interpreted as Cameron’s invention of images of a young, woman artist.
