Art Museum future
After selling four works of art, the Delaware Art Museum is debt free and looking ahead. The museum recently announced its 2016 exhibition schedule, and in this week’s First Look, we take a look at the lineup and life after a punishing year and a half.

Tornoe Spin
Every election season since 2010 has brought us reminders that Christine O’Donnell upset the Republican establishment. There’s something eerily familiar this time around too, so let’s bring in Rob Tornoe who can tie all this together.

Delaware Today: DuPont Highway continued
Last spring WHYY presented: Hundred Mile Monument. It focused on the history of the DuPont Highway, which we know as route 13. The road is home to many big name businesses as well. As part of our Content Partner series with Delaware Today Magazine, we stop in Dover to see how the roadway is still shaping Delaware’s economy.

State of Play: Can Trump be stopped?
Stephanie Hansen and Michael Stafford join us this week in the First studios. The big question for Republican’s is: ‘Can Donald Trump be stopped?’. Charlie Copeland has floated the notion that you can’t be for or against Trump unless you register Republican. Good Idea?

First Experience: Red
The color red, for people around the world has different meanings: excitement, love, joy and purity to name a few. For the Rehoboth art league, it means art. To shake up the winter months the art league challenged their members to work in red. First Experience stopped by to see the results.

The Drumline
A music education can keep kids engaged in school and make it easier to develop language, math and reasoning skills. That’s why educators at the Elbert Palmer Elementary School in Wilmington think the drumline is a springboard to college for many of their kids.
