Mission Statement

The Mission of the Delaware Foundation for the Visual Arts (DFVA) is to emphasize artistic fundamentals through scholarships to Delaware Students and the professional development of its Membership. This Mission is largely, but not exclusively, achieved by:

a)Maintaining and growing an endowment for scholarships, as well as organizing exhibition and education opportunities, for the widest possible range of students throughout the state regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, gender, economic background or sexual orientation.

b)Cultivating an artist membership through a progressing process of education, critique, jury and sales opportunities.

Membership Information
While Associate membership is open to all, Exhibiting Status is achieved by having one's work juried and accepted by a non member Jury, once a year in the fall.
