MPA Downtown: Artistic Excellence Build on Hometown Roots

MPA is uniquely positioned to harness its longstanding dedication to the arts by spearheading the establishment of a regional hub for art exhibitions, education, and outreach. The envisioned result is a vibrant, 6,000-square foot facility in which the possibilities for creativity are boundless.

To advance MPA’s enduring mission of exhibiting, educating, and inspiring, MPA is working with award-winning architects, CannonDesign, and W. Kenneth Wiseman, Design Principal and fellow of the American Institute of Architects, to create a new MPA Art and Education Center. MPA’s expanded presence will complement the existing galleries and studio at the McLean Community Center with new interior and exterior spaces in downtown McLean.

The establishment of this new Arts and Education Center presents a pivotal opportunity for MPA to advance its mission and build a long-term asset solidifying MPA’s future, while inviting and inspiring an expanding audience in our growing region through the programs it makes possible.

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.
