13th Annual Transformer Silent Auction


Transformer’s primary fundraising event, the Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party, is an extension of the non-profit organization’s overall cutting-edge aesthetic. Regarded as the fall’s ‘not to be missed’ art event, the Annual Auction provides essential support for the comprehensive year-round exhibitions and educational programming.

A fantastic opportunity for both beginning and seasoned collectors to purchase some of DC’s best contemporary visual art, Transformer’s Auction brings together a smart and sophisticated guest list of artists, collectors, gallerists, entrepreneurs, and arts enthusiasts. Attendance has tripled since inception. Each year our Auction receives increased community and media attention, accompanied with sold-out attendance. More than 700 guests attended on November 19th 2016, to see Otessa Ghadar's work, 'Abandoned Cabin', among others.
