Welcome to The Arts at Delaware County Community College!
Now in its fifteenth season, the Arts at Delaware County Community College gives you exciting opportunities to experience the arts. The New Music concert series offers an impressive lineup of contemporary performances you won't want to miss. The Art Gallery currently hosts eight visual art exhibitions showcasing the work of students as well as professional artists of national and international reputation. In addition to exhibitions, artists are periodically invited to hold lectures, collaborative projects, and workshops for the College community and the public.
