"I have made more friends in the last 6 months since joining DAC than I did in the 2 years I’ve lived here before that.

I’ve made connections with creative & inspiring people. I have even started collaborating creatively & partnering in business endeavors with fellow artists.

My life has exploded with creativity, inspiration and opportunities since joining DAC."

- Hannah Whiddon


"Being involved with DAC has been the catalyst for my art career.

The community, support, motivation and professional opportunities have helped me build confidence as an artist.

I now have a full time art business that I am proud of and passionate about."

- Laura Erickson


"DAC fulfills my needs as an artist in so many different ways.

Along with connecting me with a strong and faithful customer base, I have met so many other talented artists that encourage and want the best for each other. Running an art business can feel isolating, but I don’t feel so alone thanks to the artists at DAC.

It’s like a little family which I just love"

- Mallory Weizbicki

Opportunities For Artists To Grow

Our Vendor Events give Artists a way to sell their Art to locals & visitors alike, but the impact doesn't stop there.

Every DAC Event features a wide array of Artists--musicians, bartenders, cooks, magicians, performers--who are paid to bring their skills to make our events what the community has come to expect!

These events continue to bring support to all of our Local Businesses.

West Side Creative Market

In 2022 we invested over $60,000 to completely transform this space, creating an elevated experience for our Artist Vendors and the thousands of guests who attended this year.

Not only does Creative Market give opportunities to Artists, it is a major vehicle for DAC to raise funds. We are able to provide our Members with at-cost programming through the money made off of drink, snack, merch, & DIY sales throughout the year.

"The Creative Market has become the social, artistic and philanthropic hub of West Rehoboth."

Built For The Future of Art.

West Side Creative Market was upgraded this year to ensure that Art in our community has a place to call home for years to come.

This involved removing existing gravel & grading the lot, building a specially designed covered structure of 21 Artist booths, installing a well, new electrical connections, planting sod, and more!

The Impact Of Our Investment is Clear.


Estimated Total Vendor Sales (Up From $25,200 in 2021)


Total Artist Vendors That Participated (Up From 46 in 2021)


Estimated Attendence (Up From 6,300 in 2021)

The West Rehoboth Legacy Project

A Historically Black Community, West Rehoboth has a history that hasn't been recognized by historical markers.

When DAC first moved to West Rehoboth, we were approached by Brenda Milbourne, who co-founded and leads the West Side New Beginnings West Children and Youth Program, along with Diaz Bonville

A relationship of education, understanding, and collaboration was born.

DAC learned about the history of West Rehoboth through Brenda, Diaz Bonville, and other community members, and with their direction, we began a plan to tell that story through Art.


"DAC and West Side New Beginnings, Inc have brought the community together by extending invitations to each other. Our relationship is forever."

- Brenda Milbourne

So we helped plan, prepare, & fund a mural.

We invested over $37,000 in planning and executing a project that culminated in a Mural by renowned Artist and West Rehoboth native, Terrance Vann.

This project took the work of dozens of volunteers and community members who helped gather documents and stories, prepare the existing wall for the mural, raise funding, and more.

There is still work to be done. In the next year, we will continue to work with our West Rehoboth Partners to improve infrastructure, nurture new initiatives, and implement new ways for people to learn about the past, present, and future of West Rehoboth.
