As McLean Project for the Arts enters its seventh decade as a primary destination for creative expression, innovation, and education, it continues to grow to meet the interests and demands of the region. We are continually reminded of the central role that art serves in our community, and the importance of the work we do to provide equal opportunity for all residents of our diverse area. We need to think local, act local and give local. With your support, MPA can continue to provide art outreach programs that educate and inspire, uniting our community around cultural exchange, self-expression and a sense of the possible. 

We are stronger than ever and looking ahead to the next chapter of our story. Join us!
