Mission & Vision Statement + Members and Supporters


New Wilmington Art Association enables artists to work, develop, and think through its creative interventions staged in vacant properties throughout the City of Wilmington. New Wilmington Art Association is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions in behalf of New Wilmington Art Association may be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Mission Statement

New Wilmington Art Association supports the careers of artists by providing opportunities for uncensored experimentation, professional presentation, and critical dialogue.

Vision Statement

New Wilmington Art Association will permanently insert artists into the infrastructure of Downtown Wilmington. Strategic alliances with progressive community development corporations will guarantee space for artists in the face of economic development’s shifting landscape. New Wilmington Art Association will develop a competitive artist residency program, and will recruit new artists through its program of exhibitions, both of which will help to transform the community and create new audiences through artistic interventions. Artist lectures, studio visits, panel discussions, and a series of professional workshops will guarantee a relevant and organized art community that is empowered by a working knowledge of the non-profit sector.
