Bringing our community together for an hour of fun, inspiration and celebration of the arts.

Creating community and supporting the creative arts is more important now than ever. We need your help to keep COVID from extinguishing the arts!

As resilient arts organizations do, MPA adapted to meet the needs of this past year. Join us in celebrating our many accomplishments, reveling in our community, and supporting our year ahead!

If you’re new to MPA, let us tell you more about what we do!

MPA invites you to join us on Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 8-9pm for our inaugural ArtSprings! Virtual Benefit, a celebration of MPA and the Gift of McLean Artist Emilie Benes Brzezinski’s Work.

The family of Sculptor and longtime McLean resident Emilie Benes Brzezinski is thrilled to be joining us as MPA officially accepts the mantle to establish the next chapter of their mother’s artistic legacy.

Held in lieu of our traditional Spring Benefit, ArtSprings! will feature special guest Hynek Kmoníček, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic to the United States.

Nationally recognized media personality and lifestyle correspondent Amy Goodman will emcee the event, which will feature an array of musical performers, including Voices of Classic Soul with Joe Coleman, Joe Blunt, and Theo Peoples. The Dave Kline Band, with special guest Senator Tim Kaine; and members of the prestigious Strathmore Music Center’s Artist in Residence program. Throughout the event, there will also be original music from the Creative Cauldron’s Passport to the World Festival artists.

Additionally, artists Barbara Januszkiewicz and Antoinette Wysocki will share their backgrounds and connections to MPA, and explain how that connection influenced their successful careers.
