Art & Community Visual Arts Residency Program
For over twenty years, the DCCA Visual Arts Residency Program has forged relationships between nationally recognized artists and the Wilmington community-- providing innovative artists with the opportunity to develop professionally and to collaborate with under-served community groups to create unique works of art that are relevant to the participant’s lives. The DCCA Visual Arts Residency Program has welcomed over 40 artists, collaborated with over 50 local community organizations, and brought art into the lives of hundreds of participants. Visual Arts Residents are selected through a competitive, juried review process. Each artist submits work samples, an extensive biography, critical reviews, and a proposal for art they will create with a Wilmington community group. Proposals are judged by the strength and innovation of artists’ work, the artists’ experience with community interaction, and the impact the project will have on the Wilmington community.

Sandro Del Rosario – Spring 2011
Sandro Del Rosario is an animation artist from Los Angeles by way of Italy. For the 2011 Spring residency, Del Rosario collaborated with teens from Cab Calloway School for the Arts and from West End Neighborhood House to create experimental animations. Through a series of experiments and assignments in mixed media, photography, drawing, and collage, the teens created conceptual self-portraits based on an exploration of their geographical and cultural identity. The students then took those portraits and used them to create frame-by-frame animated videos. With Del Rosario’s help, students learned how to use digital cameras and graphic design/animation software to create the animated videos. These pieces, along with a documentary that Del Rosario made about the project, were shown during the May 2011 Art on the Town.
