The Delaware Contemporary

Wilmington, Delaware

With its vaulted ceilings and majestic clerestory windows, the Delaware Contemporary's facility provides a unique setting for the arts as well as all types of events.

The museum's look is "Industrial Chic." This fun and sophisticated atmosphere, coupled with our staff and caterers, promises a truly memorable experience. We will provide you with effortless planning, fabulous service and delicious food surrounded by artwork on the cutting edge.

The Main Lobby, the premier event space, is perfect for the celebration of your special day. The space is flexible enough to accommodate an intimate dinner event for 50 or gala affair for 300 guests.

The Wings Foundation Auditorium has theatre-style seating for 150. The Auditorium is the perfect backdrop for your small wedding ceremony.

The Delaware Contemporary also features seven galleries adjacent to the Main Lobby. These regularly changing exhibitions feature painting, printmaking, sculpture, crafts, photography, and installation works by international, national and regional artists.

The Miracles for Molly Dunne Foundation held our inaugural fundraising gala at the DCCA on November 8, 2014. The entire staff was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything that we needed. There was a constant stream of communication and everything went off without a hitch. The venue has such an eclectic yet very sophisticated vibe. The food was delicious and Jimmy Duffy's catered to our every whim. Rave reviews for an amazing location! We are already hard at work planning this year's gala at the DCCA.
