As a way to enrich the artistic experience, the Rehoboth Art League organizes bus trips to regional arts and cultural institutions. Group travel on comfortable tour buses makes the trip simple, and the cost of admission to each museum or site is included in the costs of registration.
Delaware Art Museum
Wednesday, December 15
Join the Rehoboth Art League for a day Wilmington, where we will visit the Delaware Art Museum and have a guided tour of their latest exhibition, Afro-American Images 1971: The Vision of Percy Ricks. Marking the 50th anniversary of this February 1971 exhibition of more than 130 works of art—drawings, prints, photographs, paintings, and sculpture—by 66 African American artists, the museum and Aesthetic Dynamics, Inc. have collaborated to examine the exhibition’s role in the Black Arts Movement as well as question why this seemingly successful event was largely neglected by historians in the decades that followed. After a guided tour of this special exhibition, a boxed lunch will be provided, then enjoy a self-guided tour of the rest of the museum’s collections at your own pace.
Advance ticket purchase is required. Bus will leave at 8:30am sharp from the Rehoboth Beach Fresh Market parking lot, with check-in beginning at 8:00am. The bus will begin its return trip from Wilmington to Rehoboth at 2:30pm, with arrival expected at 5:00pm.
Please check delart.org for updated health and safety information. As of October 1, 2021, the museum is requiring all individuals, ages 18 and over, who enter the main building or studio space to show proof of full vaccination by presenting a vaccination card or photo of a vaccination card.
