Your Museum, Reimagined

Come visit the new DelArt galleries, reopening throughout summer 2021. Shaped by community feedback, the Museum’s main floor reimagines the stories told with art. Significant new artworks by women and Black artists add depth and diversity. New design and conservation showcase the collection vibrantly and preserve it for future generations.

The Museum remains open during these changes. The new gallery of art by John Sloan and The Eight is now open to visitors. Further gallery closures and reopenings will continue from March – September 2021.
