Remembering Emilie Benes Brzezinski

The board and staff of McLean Project for the Arts are saddened to learn of the death of longtime MPA friend and supporter Emilie Benes Brzezinski.

Sincere thanks to the Brzezinski Family for their recent gift of many of her magnificent sculptures, and for designating MPA as the recipient of memorial gifts in her memory. These gifts will be dedicated towards celebrating her incredible body of work.
