We don’t care what you’re doing on November 17, you need to clear your calendar and get ready for the best art party of the year. Transformer is hosting their 15th annual silent auction and benefit party, and if you miss it, you’ll regret it for the rest of 2018.
Hosted at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design, Transformer’s auction is the perfect excuse to spend your evening hanging out in one of the loveliest buildings in the city, while raising money for one of D.C.’s best art spaces. Who knows, you might even come home with your dream piece of art.
With over 175+ pieces of art up for grabs (including a special selection of pieces from Greek artists), this isn’t the time to go in without a plan. Which is why we’ve hand selected our five favorite pieces up for auction this year. Peruse the list below, buy your tickets (early bird ticket pricing ends on October 31!) and start picking out your outfit now.
