APRIL 18, 2024 – JULY 28, 2024

Award Winners XXIV, is an annual exhibition shining a light on the visual, performing, and literary arts fellowship recipients for 2024, curated by the Delaware Division of the Arts. 2024 marks the 24th year that The Biggs has partnered with DDOA to host this incredible exhibition supporting Delaware’s exceptional individual arts.

This year, the Division received work samples from 149 Delaware choreographers; composers; musicians; writers; and folk, media, and visual artists. The work samples were reviewed by out-of-state arts professionals who considered the demonstrated creativity and skill in each artist’s respective art form. Twenty artists were awarded fellowships in the following categories – one, Masters; ten, Established; and nine, Emerging. The twenty selected fellows reside throughout Delaware including Arden, Dover, Lewes, Long Neck, Newark, Rehoboth Beach, and Wilmington.

The work of the Fellows will be featured in a group exhibition, Award Winners XXIV, at the Biggs Museum of American Art, and will travel to CAMP Rehoboth and Cab Calloway School of the Arts.
