is in
Delaware Art Museum's New Contemporary Gallery

Wilmington, DE (January 31, 2014) ĖThe Delaware Art Museumís contemporary gallery recently underwent a major renovation and reinstallation. Dedicated to the Museumís holdings of contemporary American art, Gallery 17 features works of art from 1960 to the present. Reconfiguring the gallery allowed the Museum to delve into its holdings and nearly double the amount of artwork on view in the space. (Click photo for another view of the sculpture).
