Transformations: Contemporary Artists at Winterthur

5105 Kennett Pike, Winterthur, DE 19735

  • Details

    Opening June 8, 2024

    Winterthur connects the past and the present in an exciting new exhibition showcasing contemporary art. Transformations features more than thirty nationally recognized artists whose work draws inspiration from the historic collections of the museum, garden, and library. Discover how the old influences the new—forging connections across communities, transforming our perspectives about history, and commenting on our lives today. These artistic expressions reflect each artist’s connection to the fine craftsmanship and design in Winterthur’s collection of decorative arts and archival materials as well as its naturalistic garden and landscape

    Transformations is an ongoing project that began in the spring of 2021. Explore the online exhibition now to see current and past works. Then visit the Galleries beginning in June to experience more, in person. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind collaboration!

    About Winterthur’s Maker–Creator Research Fellowship

    Most of the artists in Transformations took part in the Maker–Creator Research Fellowship program, which invites artists, writers, filmmakers, horticulturists, craftspeople, and other creative professionals to immerse themselves in Winterthur’s collections. The fellowship provides a stipend and gives access to the museum and estate for research. Works resulting from the fellowships are on view in the galleries and garden. For more information and to apply, visit our Fellowships page.


    Transformations is an ongoing project that began in spring 2021. Explore the Transformations online exhibition for more information on current and past works. This list of participating artists will be updated as new maker-creators are included in the exhibition.
