What is the Council?

We’re a group of Museum members passionate about the Delaware Art Museum. Started in 1967 as a women’s committee primarily dedicated to fundraising, the Council has grown to include men and women who support the Museum through volunteering, friend-raising, fundraising, and sharing art and cultural experiences.

In addition to joining the Museum, Council members pay a nominal membership fee and in return, receive

  • our newsletter,
  • invitations to all our meetings, activities, and trips,
  • invitations to volunteer opportunities at the Museum,
  • donation requests, and
  • NEW this year – an opportunity to make art!

Our organization has an Executive Board that meets monthly to oversee our operations, direction, and programming.  We also have many committees to support our various programs.  We encourage ALL members to get involved in one or more of our programs/committees.
