Wilmington, Del. - 11 November 2011 - Maxine Gaiber, Executive Director of the DCCA, announces that Anne Coleman has joined the organization as Director of Development.  Coleman joins the DCCA with a background in for-profit and nonprofit leadership in Wilmington institutions past and present, including the MBNA Foundation and Winterthur Museum.  Most recently she served as director of marketing at Calico Corners - Calico Home in Kennett Square, PA.


"DCCA is unique in our region.  It encourages everyone to explore contemporary art and society in new ways," says Coleman, who lived many years in downtown Wilmington.  "Contemporary art stretches the mind and helps all of us tap into our creative potential as artists and thinkers.  From changing exhibits to educational programs to artists' studios, there is always something new at DCCA.  I can't wait to work with community leaders and individuals who understand the vital role DCCA plays in Delaware, fostering new ideas and art.  What a great time to be part of the growth and revitalization of this terrific city!"
