The mission of McLean Project for the Arts is to exhibit the work of emerging and established artists from the mid-Atlantic region; to promote public awareness and understanding of the concepts of contemporary art; and to offer instruction and education in the visual arts.
MPA is a non-profit visual arts center founded in 1962 to exhibit the work of emerging and established regional artists. MPA meets the needs of the community today though its exhibition and education programs. Our three galleries provide both emerging and established artists much-needed exhibition space. The beautiful 2,000 square foot Emerson Gallery provides one of the few spaces available in the metropolitan region for large sculpture and installations. MPA enriches its community that is hungry for high quality visual arts by providing museum quality exhibitions and creating a cultural destination. In addition to its program of high quality, professionally-curated art exhibitions, MPA presents special traveling exhibitions from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
MPA offers art classes for children and adults taught by professional art instructors. MPA also presents the ArtReach program for area schools, gallery talks, and day trips to area museums and galleries.
