The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts is Delaware’s only contemporary art museum. Founded in 1979, it is a non-collecting museum focused on displays of local and regional artists.

The Museum moved from a location near downtown to a the Christina riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware in 2000.

In 2008, DCCA quit charging admission to view the galleries to offer families more affordable cultural choices during the recession.[1]
