A major component of the exhibition, Dream Streets: Art in Wilmington 1970–1990, is the oral history project funded in part by a grant from the Delaware Humanities Forum. Between August 2010 and January 2014 interviews were conducted with 63 individuals—artists, musicians, arts advocates, and former politicians—whose activities impacted the contemporary art scene in Wilmington in the 1970s and 1980s. Transcriptions of these interviews may be found below.
