Permanent Collection 

Over 900 items are contained in our permanent collection. These works include original sketches, oil and watercolor paintings, sculpture, and a host of other creative works. The Rehoboth Art League is an active collecting institution. The Collections Committee, a standing committee of the Board of Trustees, oversees accessions.

Homestead Collection 

The Peter Marsh Homestead contains colonial furniture, artifacts and functional art collected by the Corkrans when they resided in the historic home from 1929 to 1974. The Rehoboth Art League has committed to retain these items to provide education on the early days of the Rehoboth Art League and its Founders.

Education Collection 

As a teaching institution, the Rehoboth Art League has several artworks to educate students in local art history, biographies and technique. A 2012 donation by the family of Howard Schroeder provided a new series of works for study on figures and still life.

Archives 

The Rehoboth Art League has a repository of photographs, scrapbooks, program booklets and meeting minutes from the beginning of the Rehoboth Art League. The Rehoboth Camera Club, Azalea Society and several performing arts and music groups were created and resided as part of the Art League for several decades. A review of the photographs and news clippings provides a glimpse into the creation of the town of Henlopen Acres, the Rehoboth Art League, and the Rehoboth Cultural scene in general for the past 75 years.

Undocumented Works

The Art League continues to inventory and identify historic artifacts found on the campus. The items not yet inventoried reside in this collection until they are appropriately documented.

Doors of Fame

The Doors of Fame are an example of the collection’s significance. Emblazoned with the signatures and artistic renderings of hundreds of artists and patrons, the doors provide a snapshot of the “who’s who” in Rehoboth from the 1930’s through today.
