Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's and Schell Brothers Underwrite Inaugural Rehoboth Boardwalk Arts Festival

February 12th, 2020

The Rehoboth Art League is pleased to announce Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty and local developers Schell Brothers will be the underwriters for the Rehoboth Boardwalk Arts Festival. This inaugural event will take place on Saturday, May 23 from 10 am-5 pm, during the busy Memorial Day weekend.

The Rehoboth Art League and the City of Rehoboth Beach have partnered to produce the City’s first-ever boardwalk arts festival, where dozens of juried Rehoboth Art League member artists will showcase and sell their work amidst the backdrop of the picturesque coastline and the highly trafficked boardwalk. Locals and vacationers alike will be able to ask the artists about their creative process and purchase their original artwork. “We at Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s are thrilled to be a sponsor for the Rehoboth Art League show over Memorial Day weekend,” says Kathleen Schell, Marketing Director. “The Art League has such a long and storied history here at the beach and it will be wonderful to share that this May with locals and visitors alike.” 

Over the course of more than seventy-five years, the Rehoboth Art League has offered art-inspired activities, events, educational, and outreach programming throughout Sussex County. As a non-profit, the funds raised from our Rehoboth Boardwalk Arts Festival will support the many artists and young people who want to improve their art skills and connect the community with creative experiences.  Our programs support more than 700 artists and 1,000 young people in southern Delaware and engage more than 25,000 community members each year. Attending and supporting the Boardwalk Arts Festival will ensure that the Rehoboth Art League can continue to provide quality arts programs in the region.
