Delco Arts Week: October 2-9, 2021
The Delaware County Arts Consortium (DCAC) is a collaborative of arts and culture groups working to advance the economic vitality of the Delaware County arts and culture community, and to promote the value of cultural resources to our local community.
From the nation’s first community theater, to professional musical performances, ballet companies, distinctive galleries, history museums and thousands of classes for people of all ages, all roads DO lead to the arts in Delaware County. Learn More
UPCOMING DCAC EVENTS
Wayne Art Center is celebrating the landscape in Back to Nature 2021 – A Landscape Painter’s Invitational – an art exhibition featuring the work of 21 regional painters both in-gallery and online through June 26, 2021.
The Media Arts Council’s MAC Art Gallery is open again to the public. The gallery will be open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 4 pm – 7 pm, for up to eight people at a time.

Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra Director Reuben Blundell recently assembled the LSO virtually to produce two performance videos for inclusion in the Delco Arts Spring Fling event. Performed entirely in the individual orchestra members’ homes, the LSO came together under the guidance of Blundell (with a little help from technology) to stream two pieces by William Grant Still.
Ten Reasons to Invest in Your Local Arts Agency
Randy Cohen, Vice President of Research at Americans for the Arts, states the case for prioritizing arts funding in this piece, which can be useful when asking for support from donors and benefactors.
Local arts agencies—arts councils, arts commissions, cultural affairs departments—are an essential tool for community leaders as they rebuild their economies and promote social cohesion in the wake of COVID-19. The nation’s 4,500 local arts agencies (LAAs) support, present, and promote the dynamic value of the arts.
