Thought the musuem was larger with more exhibits. We were only there for about 1/2 hour and that was really stretching it out. Do not park in any spaces that are not marked for the museum or you will get a warning (like we did) not to park in the lot beside the museum.

The center was recommended by at staff member at another area attraction. He had told us that we would either love or hate it. We choose to ck it out as we are interested in a variety of art forms. The museum is not large so you might be able to spend an hour or so. Great location as its... More

Great, small, FREE museum (those are my favorite kinds!) The various exhibits were colorful, wild, provocative, unusual, thought-provoking; yes, anything but boring. Listen to the other reviewers; leave the kids home! However, I do not consider anything I saw pornography; to me, it's ART.

Easy building to find with GPS with plenty of parking if you go on the weekend. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was easy to walk around. There was a neat outdoor exhibit one story high made with colorful plastic milk crates. That right there says why modern art is exercise for the brain. It shows the uniqueness... More

DCCA is a cutting edge local art center which has an interesting variety of art, some of it leaning toward the interactive. We enjoyed the imPERFECT City exhibit and wished we could be there for one of the town hall meetings. An exhibit titled Healing Sutras gave us a totally new perspective on the art of embroidery. A Kickstarter financed... More

First off it is free. It is also small. Has wonderful ecletic pieces that you may hate or you may love. Wonderful space for emerging artists to showcase their work. Enjoyed it and look forward to going back to see new works. Wish they had an evening for adults only with alcohol and adult themes and classes. There were some... More

The area appears to be one that is being rejuvenated. The building is something of a sculpture itself. The installations change. The artists on view at this time were very interesting. I am not one for extreme modern art but could appreciate the innovative use of materials. I can appreicate there being a venue for artists who do large works... More

We have attended the family events that occur on weekends and have found the Center to be interesting and the activities to be worthwhile.

The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts showcases the talents of Delaware artists. My sister has shown her artwork at several exhibitions. The DCCA also serves as the backdrop for several fund-raising galas throughout the year. Great restaurants in the area, especially Harry's Seafood Grill.

Went here for a reception in the evening. It's small, but very interesting. Would only take an hour to see, if you're in the area.
