Description

16th Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party

Saturday, October 26, 2019

8 - 11 PM

THE CORCORAN SCHOOL OF THE ARTS & DESIGN

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

We are thrilled to present the 16th Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design. This year's Auction theme is Bauhaus Cabaret in honor of Transformer's cultural collaborations with the Goethe Institute and German Artists, our Auction Diplomatic Chair, H.E. Emily Haber, The Ambassador of Germany, and the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus art movement. Creative Bauhaus Cabaret cocktail attire is encouraged.

Guests will enjoy specialty drinks & German inspired hors d'oeuvres throughout the evening, an artist designed photo booth, performance art actions, and beats by Natty Boom and DJ bent of Anthology of Booty DJ Collective. Transformer is excited to feature a special selection of contemporary artworks by emerging German artists in this year’s Auction, in tandem with 175+ DC emerging and more established artists.
