Transformation 10 Opening Reception
September 14 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” is the perfect idiom for Transformation 10: Contemporary Works in Found Materials, The Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize Exhibition.
The exhibition will open on Friday, September 14, and we would love to see you at this free and public opening reception starting at 5:30 PM. During the reception, we will also be announcing the winner and honorable mention recipients for The Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize!
Featuring 26 national and international artists who have been selected as finalists for the 2017 Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize. Transformation 10 will showcase newly created, innovative artworks that incorporate found materials in unexpected ways and challenge notions about commonplace objects, found materials, and contemporary art for personal and global narratives, expressions, and aesthetics.
Transformation 10: Contemporary Works in Found Materials and the Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize are made possible by Alexandra and Catherine Raphael, The Fine Foundation, and Cohen & Grigsby, P.C. Additional support is provided by the Allegheny Regional Asset District, The Heinz Endowments, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the Elizabeth R. Raphael Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation.
