First galleries and events manager reimagining DCAD spaces

When Kelicia Pitts became the first-ever galleries and events manager at the Delaware College of Art and Design this year, it was a kind of homecoming. Pitts had grown up in Claymont – she’s a member of the Mount Pleasant High School Class of 1996 – but wasn’t sure she’d ever live near home again after moving to Philadelphia.

Experience as a fine art model and as an abstract and street art gallery owner in the Rittenhouse Square area inspired her to pursue a degree that blended her two passions: art and business. She graduated from Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art & Design in 2016 with a degree in curatorial studies and a dual minor in business and fine art.
