Admission: $60-$100

The Delaware College of Art and Design will host its Fifth Annual Scholarship Gala at World Cafe Live at The Queen, 500 N. Market St., Thursday, May 5, 2011, at 6 p.m. DCAD is the first organization to schedule a major event at downtown’s newest venue.

The evening will celebrate artwork by the College’s Associate of Fine Arts Degree Program students and the different pieces will be sold in a silent auction along with other select items.The evening will also include a live auction and live entertainment, including a tableau vivant created by DCAD students. A tableau vivant recreates an artistic masterpiece in a matter of seconds. At the 2010 gala, students recreated Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper," which was a huge hit with attendees.

Honorary chairs for this year's event are accomplished artists Sarah Lamb and David Larned. This talented couple lives and works on a 300-year-old farm outside of Philadelphia. Lamb is a dynamic realist painter known for her still lifes and landscapes. Larned is well-known for his portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Proceeds from the gala will go toward DCAD scholarships. Since opening 14 years ago, the Delaware College of Art and Design has awarded nearly $5 million in need and merit-based aid to incoming students. Next year, DCAD will return more than $800,000 – or 20 % of tuition revenue, as institutional financial aid. Support of this event will enable DCAD to maintain a competitive, affordable tuition and make it possible for talented students, who meet DCAD’s admissions’ criteria, to attend the only professional art and design school in Delaware.

Tickets are $175 for couples, $100 for individuals or $60 for young professionals (35 and younger). Tickets may be purchased at www.dcad.edu/site/support_dcad.
