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. 

Looking ahead to 2024, we are inspired to do even more—and we 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 Jill, Paul and JP Young, 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?
