Milton Arts Guild
Inspiration Art Exhibit
Milton Arts Guild will host its “Inspiration” art exhibit April 28-June 19, 2022 which will highlight works in multiple media created by the Guild’s artists. “Inspiration” is Milton Arts Guild’s third exhibition of the year, and its art will reflect anything that inspires the artists. Milton Arts hosts eight formal exhibits each year, in addition to special, seasonable events and “pop-up” exhibits at its 107 Federal Street Gallery.
“Inspiration,” like all Milton Arts Guild exhibits, is intended to reach out to the community through the shared experience of viewing the world through the eyes of the artist. More than 15 pieces of art–in diverse media created by diverse artists–will also engage the community to tap into their own creativity through other Milton Arts Guild activities, including classes.
Milton Arts Guild, located in historic downtown Milton, Delaware, celebrates creativity in all forms of visual arts by engaging the community through an array of educational opportunities, events, exhibitsand benevolent programs. Fueled by its volunteer members and supported by a large and diverse community locally and beyond, Milton Arts Guild welcomes everyone to explore the power of art and to inspire them in their own creativity.

“I’m thrilled to have been asked to do it,” says Rebeck. “I think the REP is astonishing. The company is so gifted–individually they are all wonderful actors, and they are all incredible comedians. As a unit, they are sort of beyond reckoning. It’s an astonishing opportunity for me to be able to walk into a unit like that.”
The projects above are supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes these and other Delaware arts events on DelawareScene.com.
The Division offers a variety of grant programs for individual artists; nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations chartered and based in Delaware; and schools and government entities that support arts activities. View a full list of Division grants on the Grants Overview page.
