McLean Project for the Arts Announces Gift of McLean Artist Emilie Benes Brzezinski’s Work
MPA will accept the mantle to establish the next chapter of sculptor and longtime McLean resident Emilie Benes Brzezinski’s spectacular body of work. The gift was announced at MPA’s ArtSprings! Virtual Benefit on April 29th, which was attended by Brzezinski’s children, Ian, Mark, and MSNBC journalist Mika Brzezinski.
“Mom’s art has inspired my brothers and me throughout our lives,” said daughter Mika Brzezinski. “Now with MPA’s lead, her works can continue to inspire generations to come.
Ian Brzezinski, MPA board member, explained that “Given our respect for MPA’s place in the region’s art community, and Mom’s longstanding and authentic relationship with MPA, my family and I are thrilled that MPA has accepted our gift of mom’s many and magnificent sculptures. We are excited to continue and strengthen this relationship by giving MPA the lead in celebrating mom’s incredible body of work.”
