As McLean Project for the Arts has celebrated our 60th anniversary throughout 2022, we’ve been 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 both in-person and virtual arts education programming to some of our community residents affected most by the ever-changing public health situation.

During this anniversary year, we are proud of the pivots and adaptations throughout our 60 years that have allowed us to continue to thrive in connecting art and community in Northern Virginia and the greater Washington area. As a premier center for contemporary art exhibitions and arts education programming, we are inspired to do even more in 2023 and need your generous support. 

GivingTuesday gift at any level will allow us to continue adapting and connecting art and community. And this year, thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, we are able to match all donations up to $10,000. This means your Giving Tuesday donation will go TWICE as far! What can you do to help us meet our goal?
