Support MPA

Exhibit, Educate, Inspire!

Since 1962, McLean Project for the Arts has connected art and community in Northern Virginia. MPA is a premiere center for contemporary visual art exhibitions and arts education programming, including our award-winning MPA ArtReach.  Your support helps us remain a constant in an ever-changing world, building stronger communities through experience with and understanding of art!

This year marks a major landmark for McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) as we turn 60! As we reflect on all that MPA has accomplished and look ahead to our future, we are reminded that “Art Moves Us” and 60 years later, art continues to be central to MPA’s mission to make art and art education accessible to all in our community.

Join us in building for the future by supporting us as we celebrate 60! We appreciate your support and hope you will join us in this year’s celebrations!
