The Delaware Art Museum's year-long Centennial Celebration--which officially began last November--continues this summer with a surprise pop-up art campaign titled Art is Everywhere! "Pop-up" art is an outdoor museum exhibition that uses main streets and landmark outdoor spaces as its gallery space. Realistic reproductions of works of art are printed to scale, framed, and then installed in pedestrian--friendly outdoor locations--including parks, the sides of public or private buildings, and other locations where people gather.
On view July 17 - October 1, 2012, Art is Everywhere features 15 reproductions of some of the Museum's most treasured paintings, such as Howard Pyle's The Mermaid, Winslow Homer's Milking Time, and Edward Hopper's Summertime.
"The Delaware Art Museum's collection really belongs to all Delawareans," says Museum Executive Director Danielle Rice. "By sharing reproductions of some of our most beloved works of art, we're hoping Art is Everywhere will spark curiosity and inspire both new and current visitors."
Carla Markell, First Lady of Delaware, is also excited about Art is Everywhere. "This is a great example of local businesses and arts organizations collaborating to bring energy to our community," Markell says. "Art is Everywhere is a creative way to make art more accessible throughout the state. I am looking forward to seeing all 15 sites!"
Installations will occur in New Castle County on Monday and Tuesday, July 16 and 17, Maps can be downloaded at delart.org/artiseverywhere
