Award Winners VIII

Although the Bigg's permanent collection can keep you permanently interested we are always thrilled to open up new, temporary exhibitions. Each summer we host the talents of the recipients of the DDOA (Delaware Division of the Arts) Individual Artist Fellowship in an exhibition entitled, Award Winners. Going into the eighth summer, the Biggs is impressed as ever with the talent displayed. Ryan Grover, Curator, did an impressive job of creatively displaying all four areas of interest (Visual, Literature, Museum and Media). So impressive, that you MUST come see it! Once again, all fellowship recipients are displaying their work in the Biggs Museum from now through the end of October.

In celebration of this exhibit, the Biggs Museum hosted an opening reception last Wednesday evening. It was a great opportunity to pick the artists' brains, meet some "top dogs" from DDOA, and munch on some of my favorite treats from 33 West.
