The Delaware Public Archives unveiled a new exhibition on Tuesday, September 19 featuring the creations of Wilmington fused-glass artist Marcie Tauber, now on display in the Friends of the Delaware Public Archives Meeting Room. This exhibition is the first installation in a new partnership between the Archives and its sister agency the Delaware Division of the Arts entitled “The Arts at the Archives.”
“We’re excited to welcome Delaware artists to the Delaware Public Archives,” said State Archivist Stephen Marz. “These exhibitions enhance our patrons’ visits to the archives and give our guest artists a chance to shine by exhibiting their work in a different venue to new audiences.”
Dr. Courtney Stewart, Deputy Secretary of State; Stephen Marz, State Archivist; Kristin Pleasanton, Deputy Director, Delaware Division of the Arts, and a number of members of the Delaware Public Archives team were in attendance to view Tauber’s creations and to learn about her work and creative processes.
The Delaware Public Archives is one of the oldest public archives programs in the country. Created by the General Assembly in 1905, the Archives cut the ribbon on its current home on December 7, 2000. The mission of the Delaware Public Archives is three-fold:
The Delaware Division of the Arts, a branch of the Delaware Department of State, is dedicated to cultivating and supporting the arts to enhance the quality of life for all Delawareans. Together with its advisory body, the Delaware State Arts Council, the Division administers grants and programs that support arts programming, educate the public, increase awareness of the arts, and integrate the arts into all facets of Delaware life.
