You can find it upstairs and downstairs, in the galleries and in the lobby: the Delaware Art Museum's "Biennial '96" sprawls all over the building in lively, engaging fashion. It's thought-provoking, it's manageable though big, it's well installed and it's about us here in Maryland.This biennial was restricted to Delaware artists until 1987, when Philadelphia artists were included for the first time. This year, museum chief curator Nancy Miller Batty made it a priority to expand this regional juried show even more by opening it to artists in northeastern Maryland -- Baltimore City and Baltimore, Harford and Cecil counties.

Imagine a beautiful spring day. You've just left the ballpark and are strolling along the waterfront in the heart of downtown. When you're tired of walking, there are numerous shops and boutiques along the promenade to pique your interest and a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. There are even tables outside on the patio where you can take in the scenery while you dine and watch the sun set. Sound like a typical day at Baltimore's Inner Harbor? Well, think again. This waterfront is in Wilmington, Del. What was once an ugly industrial area along the Christina River has been turned into a thriving tourist destination.

It is dark outside, and the diner is sparsely lighted. Only one customer sits on his bar stool, drinking his last sip. He looks at the waitress, who prepares coffee. She tries to shake off his look, but he keeps staring. "She might be afraid of being robbed by him," says Delaware Art Museum guide Phoebe Dall to explain the tension between the two plaster figures. She is standing in front of George Segal's work The Diner. This is the first piece visitors to the exhibit American Tableaux will encounter.
