Go to the Artist Roster


Compiled by the Delaware Division of the Arts, the Delaware Artist Roster presents artists from Delaware who are available to exhibit, perform or present programs in venues through the state and region. 

While the Division of the Arts does not jury artists for this roster through a formal process, the Division carefully reviews applications submitted by individual artists and performing groups to determine that the artists included in the roster meet basic criteria established by the Division.

The roster provides basic information on a wide array of artists, as you begin your search for an artist or group to fulfill your programming needs. You can learn more by contacting the artists and exploring possibilities together.

The roster is a resource for:

  • Businesses
  • Civic Organizations
  • Performing Arts Centers
  • Festivals
  • Galleries
  • Schools and colleges

The roster groups artists in the following categories:

  • Literary Artists

Each roster entry contains information about the artist, including:
