REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Coming together to be creative and make a difference. Every Monday, the Developing Artist Collaboration (DAC) hosts a Creative Market at Rehoboth Beach.
DAC Executive Director Leah Beach hopes to make West Rehoboth Beach the permanent home of Creative Market. Right now, the group is collecting signatures to show community support. The planning and zoning meeting with Sussex County takes place in a week, followed by the hearing in September. Beach hopes to fill the space with vendors of art, music, games, and more every Monday night.
“Incorporate some spoken word, some poetry, we have some violinists coming up so we want to make this a really cool music and dining experience. We always have two really cool food trucks,” Beach said.
While the community supports artists, artists also give back. Many local artists have come together to support local business owner Tyler Hudson, who was injured in a scooter accident just a few weeks ago.
“He has been a great friend. This community has gone above and beyond to rally with them. I, including many other artists, have donated artwork to raise funds and we are so proud about that community and how they really came out, ”says the beach.
Lindo’s Pinchos donates 50 percent of all profits from his delicious chicken to Tyler’s Fund, to continue supporting him and his family as he recovers.
“I can do something that can help, so it’s not much but it’s something. I just wanted to show a little love,” Luis Vazquez said with Lindo’s Pinchos.
