What art inspires you? How do you collect and display it? For the next month, anyone can subscribe to a video series sponsored by Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate, in which some of the D.C. region’s most well-known contemporary art collectors allow viewers a peek at works they have on display in their homes.

The Collector’s View 2020 ‘Reimagined Online’ series is the 13th annual exhibition by Transformer, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit visual arts organization that promotes emerging arts leaders. This year’s exhibition moved to an all-online format because of COVID-19. Art will be presented in a daily series of short (around five minutes), self-filmed videos provided by the owners of the works.

A new video will launch each day, Monday through Friday, running from June 22 through July 22, with access to each previously released video available throughout the run of the program. On Fridays, two videos will be released. This year’s event is free, although donations are encouraged. Register here: 2020collectorsview.eventbrite.com.

A password will be emailed to all confirmed subscribers prior to the release of the first video. Reminder emails will be sent each day as a new video is released.
