Collector’s View 2020


In sensitivity and solidarity to the current moment of protesting and grieving in DC and across our country, Transformer has decided to postpone the launch of our Collector’s View 2020 Reimagined Online series today, along with our regular online programming.

For now we hope everyone is staying safe and taking care of themselves. We look forward to when we can best share this series with you.

An ongoing list of community-sourced resources of support and mutual aid can be found on Transformer's website here.

june 1 - 30, 2020

Your daily dose of afternoon art inspiration!





Tune in at 4pm every Monday - Friday this June, as Transformer shares a new video in our Collector’s View 2020 ‘Reimagined Online’ series.

Transformer's annual spring Collector’s View series - now in its 13th year - shares the private collections of a select and diverse group of DC’s prominent contemporary art collectors.
Over the past 12 years, Transformer has presented Collector’s View as a series of special receptions in collectors’ homes. This year, in response to COVID-19, Transformer’s Collector’s View 2020 has been Reimagined Online - presenting a special series of videos released to subscribers every weekday throughout June 2020.
Each video ‘View’ is as unique as our collector Hosts - providing intimate, insider perspectives on the motivations, interests, and passions behind a favorite artwork in their collection.

Many thanks to Transformer’s Collector's View 2020 Reimagined Online Hosts, and Exclusive Sponsor Long & Foster | Christie's International Real Estate, for their generous support.
