The state's only contemporary art museum, the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts (now usually just called the Delaware Contemporary), features displays of local and regional artists in its seven galleries. It also features about 26 artists' studios, a gift shop, a high-tech auditorium, and a classroom where workshops and lectures are held. The museum is best known for its challenging and intriguing exhibitions and the curators make sure the exhibitions are relevant and topical. The fact that admission is free is an extra incentive for visitors with time to kill in the city, and the quick turnover of art on display ensures that there is always something new to see.
