Arts Access

Arts Access

The Arts Access Initiative offers year-round, high-quality, diverse arts experiences at no cost to participants/attendees. The initiative includes four distinct programs designed to reach different audiences, including children, their families, and the underserved community-at-large. Those programs include Arts in Education, Young Audiences Series, free programming and the Community Access Program.

Young Audience Series

Between May and September, Freeman Arts Pavilion offers a series of free youth performances open to children and families throughout the Delmarva region. Performance are offered at 10 am, once or twice each week. Past programs have included Cascading Carlos, Storyteller Gary Lloyd, and local artist John Donato.

Free Programming

Throughout the summer months, Freeman Arts Pavilion also offers a variety of (mostly evening) performances to the general public, completely free-of-charge. Performances include dance, music, theater, and a variety of ethnically and racially diverse programming. Some programs include talkbacks or complementary activities designed to deepen the experience for attendees. Past programs include Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, Kat Edmonson, Step Afrika!, Tiempo Libre, Terrance Simien and Tito Puente Jr.

Arts in Education

Program Vision

To partner with schools on Delmarva to build a relevant, impactful arts education program that will provide a layered approach to the school’s current curriculum by presenting opportunities for students to experience diverse arts experiences.

Our Work Continues

During this global pandemic, we remain committed to our program vision, working with our school partners to present contactless and virtual arts experiences for students in the Delmarva region. Art programs are currently available for all grade levels. For more information, please contact Operations Director Molly Williams at or 302-246-5809.

Community Access

Program Vision

To partner with fellow nonprofit organizations that serve our community and offer them opportunities to experience diverse arts programming.

With a new name comes new opportunities! As we transition to Freeman Arts Pavilion, we are using the time to re-imagine the Community Access program to continue to offer diverse arts programming for all. Stay tuned for more information!
