MPA Celebrates 60!

On September 18, 2022, McLean Project for the Arts will celebrate the incredible milestone of turning 60 with an Anniversary Gala.  An elegant celebration to be held at the new Capital One Hall, the Gala will pay tribute to MPA’s past, honor those who have made our work possible, and look to our bright future.

The black-tie-optional Gala will include a cocktail reception, hors d’oeuvres & light fare, an opportunity to experience a specially created exhibit by digital artist Joseph Cortina, and an engaging program with entertainment. The Gala will be a ticketed event and an important fundraiser supporting MPA’s mission to make visual art and art education accessible to the community.

MPA’s 60th Anniversary Gala Host Committee is a group of dedicated friends who will be an integral part of making the evening a success. Committee members will help promote the event to a wide audience of current MPA friends and donors, and new friends who may be interested in MPA.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Contact Laura Gleason if you have any questions at lgleason@mpaart.org.

Please note: MPA is a nonprofit organization, and our 60th anniversary events raise critical funds needed to support our mission-based programs. At this time, we cannot accommodate splitting sponsor packages between individuals, companies, or families. Sponsorship packages are intended to be purchased by one entity. We appreciate your understanding.
For donors interested in giving from a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), please note that IRS regulations do not permit any benefits, including tickets, to be conferred in connection with DAF contributions. IRS regulations state that ticket costs, including both cost of goods/services and charitable amount, should be paid for from sources other than a DAF. Please consult your tax professional for more information.
For donors interested in employer matching gifts, please contact MPA first to determine the tax-deductible amount.

I’m unable to attend, but would like to show my support!

We are pleased to recognize donors at $1750 and higher as event sponsors on our website and in printed materials.

McLean Project for the Arts is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, with the tax identification number of EIN #52-1374407.
