Special recognition opportunities

Sculpture Garden Tree

Select trees in the Museum’s Copeland Sculpture Garden are still available for sponsorship.  Your thoughtful gift will be honored with a plaque in front of your chosen tree. Sponsoring a tree is a meaningful tribute to your friends and family. Magnolia trees along the lovely walk from the parking lot to the Museum’s main entrance may be sponsored with a gift of $1,500, and the stunning Pin Oak trees which create a graceful allée on the Museum’s drive can be sponsored with a gift of $10,000 or more.

Sponsor Art is After Dark

The Delaware Art Museum is open on select Friday nights, but we need help! Art is After Dark is the Museum’s fun series of after-hours events. We are seeking sponsorships from the business community to help us expand the reach of these popular programs. Sponsor an entire evening for $1,000 and receive marketing exposure and great benefits for your clients and employees.  For more information, contact Tricia Mongan Handza, Institutional Giving Manager at 302.351.8523 or thandza@delart.org.
