Painter, illustrator and muralist Terrance Vann is guest-curating “Local & Famous: A Celebration of Homegrown Talent,” an exhibition of more than 50 pieces of contemporary and accessible street art by more than two-dozen artists of note, both locally and beyond, for Delaware College of Art and Design’s Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery. Vann (also known by his Instagram handle of “terranceism”) will co-host the show with fellow Wilmington artist Alim Smith (known as “yesterdaynite” on Instagram). Among the artists exhibiting alongside Vann and Smith will be Shanina Dionna, who was a winner in Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean’s international “The Dean Collection 20 St(art)ups” or TDC20 competition. Joining their work will be pieces from the area’s veterans of the art world, including Rick Rockroth, Eunice LaFate, K.O. Simms and many more. Local galleries and tattoo shops also will be represented. “Local & Famous” will open with a reception from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3, in conjunction with Art Loop Wilmington. Van Gogh Vodka, liquor sponsor for the event, will conduct a tasting featuring several signature cocktails.
