Panel Discussion with the Curators of Four Perspectives: Becoming MPA

Thursday, April 26, 7 PMfree, RSVP's appreciated

In honor of MPA’s 50th Anniversary, four past and present MPA curators — Andrea Pollan, Sarah Tanguy, Deborah McLeod, and Nancy Sausser — have come together to choose four individual exhibits featuring artists who have shown their work in the past in the MPA galleries. These exhibits will reflect MPA’s history as well as the strengths of the artists and the unique perspectives of each of the curators. Taken together, these four exhibits demonstrate the formation of the exceptional MPA exhibition program and acknowledge the efforts and influence of the fine curators who have made it what it is.

Still passionate today about its mission to exhibit, educate and promote understanding of contemporary art, MPA has grown to become a critically acclaimed visual art center that serves more than 20,000 visitors each year.
