New Exhibition Celebrates Delaware Women’s Hall Of Fame

A special exhibition featuring 160 members of the Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame continues through March 20 at the Delaware Art Museum. To mark the 40th anniversary of the prestigious award, the Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy commissioned Delaware artist Theresa Walton to create portraits of every woman inducted. The exhibition celebrates the tremendous achievement of women from across the state in a variety of professional fields. 

Portraits of Hall of Fame inductees include former Governor Ruth Ann Minner, U.S. Representative Lisa Blunt-Rochester, Delaware Children’s Theatre founder Marie Swajeski, educators Dr. Jill Biden and Dr. Reba Hollingsworth, and community leader Maria Matos.  

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Office of Women’s Advancement & Advocacy has also launched a website that features all 160 portraits and accompanying biographical information. Visit For exhibition hours at the Delaware Art Museum, visit
