The Arts

David Kim

Welcome to The Arts at Delaware County Community College!

Each year the College offers exciting opportunities to experience the arts. The New Music concert series begins its fourth season with 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.

The Drama Department is committed to providing a comprehensive theatre education to our students while bringing the results to the community through a vibrant, thought-provoking production each semester. In the spring of 2011, we began simulcasting live performances of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Our SpectiCast Broadcast Series continues with performances from the Opera, Ballet, Symphony in Cinema, and Broadway series presented by SpectiCast. Our goal is to make the College a cultural destination and contribute to the arts environment available in the Philadelphia region.
