Congratulations to Transformer!
Transformer was awarded the Mayor's Arts Award for Excellence in an Artistic Discipline on Wednesday evening April 20, 2011 as part of a ceremony at the Kennedy Center to celebrate the arts in our nation's capital. The Mayor's Arts Awards are the most prestigious honors conferred by the city on individual artists, organizations, and patrons of the arts. Each year, the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities invites citizens to nominate these outstanding artists and arts organizations.
"I am honored to accept this award for Transformer on behalf of all the many artists we have worked with since our inception in 2002. We share our thanks for the award with them, as well as with the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities for their continued support, and our amazing community of audience, donors, and foundation sponsors for helping to make our work a reality!" states Victoria Reis, Transformer's co-Founder, and Executive & Artistic Director.
