The Biggs Museum of American Art is thrilled to present the exhibition, Award Winners XXIV, marking the 24th consecutive year of hosting this exhibition in partnership with the Delaware Division of the Arts. Showcasing the exceptional work of Delaware's Individual Artist Fellowship recipients, the exhibition will be on view from April 18 to July 28. An opening reception, awards ceremony, and public performances will be held on April 18. The performances will be hosted in partnership with Delaware State University at the Schwartz Center for the Arts, a short walk from the Museum. The Opening is free to attend and promises to be an exciting celebration of artistic excellence.

Each year, the Delaware Division of the Arts recognizes outstanding artists through its Individual Artist Fellowships, offering monetary awards and public recognition. The fellows are selected based on the exceptional quality of their work, creativity, and skill in various art forms. This year, the Division received applications from 149 talented artists across disciplines such as choreography, composition, writing, visual arts, and more. Their work samples were reviewed and ranked by out-of-state arts professionals.

Award Winners XXIV features the work from artists from across the state, including fellowship recipients from Arden, Dover, Lewes, Long Neck, Newark, Rehoboth Beach, and Wilmington.  This year, one fellow was selected in the Masters category, ten in the Established category, and nine in the Emerging category. Their diverse creative expressions will be showcased in this group exhibition, which emphasizes the exceptional talent and artistic vibrancy within the Delaware arts community.

The exhibition will premiere at the Biggs Museum of American Art and subsequently travel to CAMP Rehoboth and the Cab Calloway School of the Arts, creating various opportunities for the public to engage with and appreciate these remarkable works.
