As the only full-service arts organization in the Frederick region, the Delaplaine pursues its rallying cry – "Everyone deserves art" – with gusto. Each year, 84,000 individuals visit the award-winning facility, where eight on-site galleries (plus three satellite sites at area public libraries) feature 55 exhibits in painting, ceramics, jewelry, printmaking, and more. Admission is always free. Art instructors and visiting artists lead 270 classes for all skill levels, from the "art curious" to the art professional, and needs-based scholarships ensure that anyone can participate. The Delaplaine also partners with local service providers to bring customized art programs to their clients – from preschool children from low-income families, to adults with early stage Alzheimer’s disease. And public programs, including an annual Art Carnival, drop-in art activities, and free gallery talks, further integrate art into the community. Enhancing quality of life for so many, the Delaplaine will reward your support.
