Join us for an enchanting fundraising gala set in the Victorian world.

Stroll through the special exhibition The Rossettis, which will be open all evening. Whether you’re a fan of Pre-Raphaelite art or simply want to show your support for the arts, this event promises to be a night to remember. Dress to impress.

A silent auction with items generously donated by friends of DelArt will be held during the Pre-Raphaelite Promenade. Only attendees will be able to bid on exclusive experiences and items including lunch with Delaware Governor John Carney at his residence in Dover, vacations to Loire Valley in central France and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, and a work of art by popular local painter Mary Page Evans.

The Promenade is the highlight of our Pre-Raphaelite Weekend.
