MPA Downtown: The Next Step Toward MPA’s Future

Now 60+ years strong, MPA looks to build on its success and create a new, vibrant home for Mid-Atlantic arts and artists in the region. This comes at a time when community and creativity mean more than ever.

Join us and give a gift that:

  • Invites accomplished, professional artists to connect with each other and inspire
  • Incorporates learning and community dialogue at the center of all its activities
  • Strengthens the relationships and partnerships forged across MPA’s history
  • Engages new art appreciators, students, educators, and patrons
  • Offers spaces for peaceful reflection, informal gatherings and formal events
  • Invites a broad range of contemporary artists to exhibit and share their talent with our region
  • Enriches us all through both visual inspiration and hands-on, creative expression

Please join McLean Project for the Arts in bringing the vision of this new Arts and Education Center to life in downtown McLean. Your support will make a material difference!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Contact Laura Gleason if you have any questions at

Please note: MPA is a nonprofit organization, and our 60th anniversary events raise critical funds needed to support our mission-based programs. At this time, we cannot accommodate splitting sponsor packages between individuals, companies, or families. Sponsorship packages are intended to be purchased by one entity. We appreciate your understanding.
For donors interested in giving from a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), please note that IRS regulations do not permit any benefits, including tickets, to be conferred in connection with DAF contributions. IRS regulations state that ticket costs, including both cost of goods/services and charitable amount, should be paid for from sources other than a DAF. Please consult your tax professional for more information.
For donors interested in employer matching gifts, please contact MPA first to determine the tax-deductible amount.

I’m unable to attend, but would like to show my support!

We are pleased to recognize donors at $1750 and higher as event sponsors on our website and in printed materials.
Please note, no changes will be made to the event program after September 7, 2022.
Contact Jennifer Wormser with sponsorship inquiries.

McLean Project for the Arts is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, with the tax identification number of EIN #52-1374407.
