The Delbarton Arts Council supports the arts at Delbarton by encouraging and recognizing participants in the arts, both students and faculty members; by highlighting art-related events and programs; and by serving as a forum for new ideas to promote the arts in the Delbarton community. The arts council encourages the integration of arts-related activities into Delbarton life. DAC fosters the Delbarton philosophy and tradition of Benedictine learning to develop the whole person in spirit, mind, and body, and as a member of the community. DAC supports the commitment of a balanced "renaissance" education that encompasses the arts as well as academic pursuits and encourages all Delbarton students to observe, enjoy and participate in the arts.Events
