Every First Friday! The free, self-guided public art event, Art Loop Wilmington, brings together art lovers and community to the ever-evolving downtown and greater Wilmington areas. Art galleries, studios, museums and alternative art spaces offer an opportunity to meet the featured artist(s) while enjoying refreshments, and in some cases live entertainment. With exciting and unique offerings around every corner, downtown and its surround areas celebrates the arts the first Friday of each and every month.
Art Loop Wilmington’s website – a hand-held guide to the Loop that is easily navigable by gallery location, artist or type of venue – is mobile friendly and features the monthly lineup at least two weeks prior to the start of each Art Loop. The site can be accessed at www.artloopwilmington.org. People can also join the conversation on social media by using #ArtLoopWilm or visit the Facebook Page. Art Loop Wilmington also ensures accessibility to the event through shuttle vans provided by the City of Wilmington.
Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of two shuttles, which leave the parking lot of The Delaware Contemporary, located at 200 South Madison Street, at 5:45 p.m. The shuttles provide round-trip transportation to either Downtown Art Loop venues or locations in Trolley Square and venues north of Downtown and are a convenient way to meet other art lovers. Shuttle drivers will be on-hand at The Contemporary to answer questions and help art enthusiasts navigate the many offerings of Art Loop Wilmington. Reservations are not required.
