We hope you enjoy the colorful sculptures in CAM’s courtyard by Dorothy Gillespie. Gillespie, an accomplished NYC artist, cherished the vibrant arts scene in Wilmington. The sculptures in CAM’s courtyard are from her Rockefeller Center Exhibit and will be displayed at CAM through March 2021 as part of the Dorothy Gillespie Centennial Celebration.

Gillespie was an American painter and sculptor who enjoyed an artistic career that spanned over 70 years. Known for her tremendous output of colorful, joyful sculptural art, she was among those who blazed a path for women artists during the feminist art movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Gillespie owned a house in Wilmington’s historic district and lectured at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
