The Delaware College of Art and Design (DCAD) has joined with the Delaware Art Museum and the Chris White Gallery to host Teaching Artist and Curator in Residence, a year-long creative residency in Wilmington that blends teaching, art-making, and curating. After a successful first year in 2018 with artist Roxanne R Campbell, the partnership has expanded to include DCAD. Wilmington artist JaQuanne LeRoy has been selected for the 2019-2020 residency. LeRoy is a prolific artist with deep roots in the community. His work can be seen in such disparate places as the walls of the Delaware Children’s Museum and electrical boxes on Wilmington’s Westside. Currently, he is collaborating with the artist Smashed Label to paint a large-scale mural at Father Tucker Park.
