In September, Joshua Hollingsworth joined the College’s staff as our new Curator and Gallery Coordinator for the Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery.
Josh, a former DCAD student and currently the Engagement and Exhibitions Manager for The Delaware Contemporary, is responsible for developing and coordinating DCAD’s student and visiting artist exhibitions, programming, and other related gallery activities. Watch for his first visiting artist exhibition opening in mid-November.
“I absolutely love the process of planning an exhibition,” said Hollingsworth, “from visiting the artist in their studio, vetting their work, and ultimately selecting which pieces will be installed, it’s an amazing experience.”
A native of Wilmington, Josh looks forward to continuing the Gallery’s tradition of showcasing work by DCAD students while furthering the College’s commitment to featuring artists from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond in the heart of the Creative District.
“As the curator, I’m hoping to bring in some local artists that haven’t had the chance to exhibit, hopefully, attract some international artists, and curate some thought-provoking exhibitions.”
Welcome back, Josh!
