Transformer’s upcoming Silent Auction and Benefit will celebrate its mission to support emerging artists.
By Kinne Chapin
The art world is a tough place to gain recognition. Even now legendary masters of art like Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh struggled to find support and popularity in their life time. And if it was daunting for them, think how it must feel for a young artist just starting to create pieces and find their voice. Luckily for the new talent in art, Transformer exists to help them.
Since 2002, Transformer has been working to facilitate connections between upcoming artists and their peers, as well as curators and the public. This year is no exception- the organization’s 8th annual Silent Auction and Benefit Party, which will be held on November 18, will feature over 100 pieces by artists from across the country and around the globe, and the proceeds from the event will go towards Transformer’s programs supporting new talent such as their exhibition series, where artists are allowed to show their art without paying a fee.
But while art will be the centerpiece of the November event, it’s not the only reason to attend! The party, which will be held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, promises to be a night of glamorous fun, with delicious bites from some of DC’s top restaurants and the beats of DJ Yellow Fever.
