Delaware Innovation Week is nearly upon us, can you believe it?

This year, things are really starting out with a bang: DIW’s first ever Kickoff Party at Delaware College of Art and Design is happening Friday from 5 – 8 p.m.

And here’s why you may want to get there early: before the DIW18 Kickoff, Philly-based artist Henry Bermudez will be giving a free artist’s talk from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m., in conjunction with his exhibition “Henry Bermudez in Black and White.”

The kickoff party will be on DCAD’s second floor. Down in the first-floor, at the Tatiana Copeland Student Center Gallery, you’ll also get to celebrate the November Art Loop, with the opening reception of the student-created, student-curated November Student Gallery Show.
