Delaware’s Individual Artist Fellowships recognize artists for their outstanding quality of work and provide monetary awards. Individual Artist Fellows are publicly acknowledged and benefit from the additional exposure to their work. Fellows are required to showcase their work in a public exhibition or performance, so we’ve set up a special section on DelawareScene.com for you to experience their work.

This year, the Division received work samples from 124 Delaware choreographers, composers, musicians, writers, folk and visual artists were reviewed by out-of-state arts professionals, considering demonstrated creativity and skill in their art form. The 17 selected fellows reside throughout Delaware including Hockessin, Lewes, Newark, Rehoboth Beach, and Wilmington.

Meet the Artist Fellows

Join us for the annual Award Winners exhibition, a group show featuring the 2018 Individual Artist Fellows from now through August 26 at CAMP Rehoboth. Award Winners will then travel to its final destination, Cab Calloway School of the Arts starting in September.

We invite you to the Wilmington reception and award ceremony on Friday, September 7 at 5 p.m. where you can meet the artist fellows and experience their work.

Art of Conversation Speaker Series

Last Wednesday Sarah McBride closed out our Cab Calloway School Fund’s Art of Conversation Speaker Series. The Cab Calloway School Fund would like to thank all the patrons and supporters of the Speaker Series. The first series was a great success bringing nationally acclaimed speakers to Delaware for informative, insightful and fun interviews.

The speaker series is designed to help the School Fund continue its efforts for the endowment to support the various arts in the Cab Calloway School community.

Sarah Mcbride is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign. In 2012, Sarah made national headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Sarah serves on the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware and helped lead the successful effort to add gender identity and expression to Delaware’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws. In 2008, Sarah worked for Governor Jack Markell (D-DE) and, in 2010, for former Attorney General Beau Biden (D-DE). Prior to coming to HRC, Sarah worked on LGBTQ equality at the Center for American Progress and interned at the White House, the first out trans woman to do so. Last year, Sarah made history when she became the first openly transgender person to address a major political party’s convention when she spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

 

Sarah is a Cab Calloway School of the Arts Alumni (2009) and is launching her new book which is available now.

You can find Sarah’s talks as well as Maurice Hines and Sarah Stroman’s at the below link.

College & Career Decision Day Celebration

On May 1st, our School Counseling Department, with support from the PTSO, hosted our annual College & Career Decision Day to celebrate the achievements of our AMAZING Class of 2018. 

Due to the success of our College Application Week held back in October, all 124 members of the Class of 2018 applied to at least one college by January 1st.  The Class of 2018 certainly kept our high school counselor, Kimberly Rigby, on her toes by submitting a WHOPPING total of 800 college applications, with an average of seven application submissions per senior! 

97.5% of the Class of 2018 will attend college in the fall, with the remaining 2.5% entering the world of work or attending cosmetology school.
