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. Our goal is to make the College a cultural destination and contribute to the arts environment available in the Philadelphia region.

Clybourne Park
Written by Bruce Norris
Directed by Stephen Smith

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. In response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris set up Clybourne Park as a pair of scenes that bookend Hansberry’s piece. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground. (Source)
