Delaware Discoveries Trails Interactive Street Art

Launched just in time for fall visitors to enjoy, the Delaware Discoveries Trail, created by the Delaware Tourism Office. This includes never-before-seen artwork specially designed to provide a perfect spot for a #DelawareDiscoveries photo to share on social media.

DTO commissioned local and national artists to paint nine pieces of one-of-a-kind outdoor artwork at the following locations:

  • Big Chill Beach Club
  • Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge
  • Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal
  • DE Turf
  • Delaware Art Museum
  • Hagley Museum and Library
  • Mispillion River Brewing Company
  • Riverfront Wilmington
  • Town of Wyoming

Delaware Tourism Director Liz Keller said the trail, which has been in development for over a year, is designed to increase off-season visitation to Delaware and appeal to younger travelers.

“The Delaware Tourism Office is taking an active role in developing new and exciting things to do in the state,” Keller said. “Each of the nine locations is unique and offers visitors the ability to immerse themselves in the artwork. We are aiming for wide appeal with this trail, a fun way for both younger travelers and art lovers of all ages to enjoy a socially distant outdoor activity.”

Not only does the trail provide people the chance to be part of this art but also to make their own. When someone visits at least four of the nine locations, takes a photo in front of each piece of artwork, and uploads those photos.

The Delaware Discoveries Trail artists are Leah Beach, Natalia Ciriaco, Laura Erickson, Michael Johnson, Christian Kanienberg (winner of art contest), and Kelsey Montague.
