Professional Sculptor Stan Smokler has been a Wilmington resident most of his life and is certainly IN for the Arts! When he's not leading students as a Professor at the Delaware College of Art and Design or as the head of the Marshall Bridge Welding Workshop, you can catch him enjoying some of his favorite people, places and things to do #inWilm...

Sisters Jordan and Samantha Crell may only be students, but trust us when we say they have an excellent taste IN music and arts!

Dawn Filandro: Marketing & Fitness Instructor IN Wilmington

In the morning, you can catch Dawn Filandro leading classes at the YMCA before she heads over to her marketing job at Chase. At the end of her work days and on the weekends, you often see her volunteering for the PSU Alumni Association of Delaware and the Delaware Food Bank.

Wilmington resident David Norbut is best known for his INcredible photographic eye as he captures the raw beauty of the people and environments he encounters. David loves working with creative minds and has organized his fair share of activities featuring local artists and musicians. 

Lou Mauro was born in Wilmington, DE in 1939. When I asked him why he decided to be a barber, he said, “I didn’t have a choice.” He started working in his uncle’s barbershop on Union Street when he as just 8 years old. As a young boy he would do twelve hour days in the summer. At nineteen years old he made a whopping $19.00 a week as a barber. For Lou, as you will learn later, it wasn’t about the money. It was about the love for his customers.

Poppycock Tattoo's Wilmo a Go-Go Car Show attendees may recognize Lyndsey Classic as the poster girl and live model for the annual affair, or perhaps you know her from behind the bar at James Street Tavern, where she slings drinks and manages most nights of the week...

Brian Marine, a lighting sales specialist by day, spends his nights and weekends enjoying all aspects of Wilmington to the absolute fullest - he's IN for it all!

Richard Raw is a member of our local music scene whose presence will surely be felt for years to come. Aside from the above-mentioned titles, he's an MC, poet, producer, author and teacher - you know, to name a few.
