McLean, VA: McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) will host an Art Insights Panel Discussion and Alumni Art Exhibition Showcase on Saturday, November 18, 2023 from 2-5pm. Part of MPA’s inaugural MPA Inspires: A Weekend of Collecting and Connecting celebration, the event will take place at MPA Downtown, the organization’s hoped-for new supplemental space located at 6910 Fleetwood Road in McLean, VA. The Alumni Art Exhibition Showcase will feature work by more than 60 MPA alumni artists.

“The 61 outstanding artists featured in the MPA Inspires Weekend have donated their works in support of the development of a new MPA Art and Education Center,” explained Helen Frederick, member of the MPA Board of Directors and member of the MPA Art and Education Curatorial Host Committee. “These dynamic artists are making this generous donation because they appreciate what MPA has done for them, and they want to support MPA as it plans to expand and offer more opportunities for the art community.”

Presented by The Mather, the Art Insights event will begin with a panel discussion featuring collectors Michael Abrams and Sandra Stewart, art advocate Nancy Hirshbein, and Eric Key, Arts Program Director at the University of Maryland University College.

A ”Meet the Artists” session and gallery tour will follow the panel discussion. Guests will enjoy a unique opportunity to connect with the alumni artists about their work, providing a firsthand glimpse into the inspiration that fuels their artistic expressions. The event will conclude with a reception.

In addition to Saturday’s discussion and showcase, the weekend will feature an Art + Soul | Jazz Brunch on Sunday, November 19 from 11:30am until 2:30pm.

The Art + Soul portion of the weekend will also include a highly anticipated Collectors’ Drawing featuring 60 artworks generously contributed by generations of alumni artists who comprise MPA’s artistic legacy.
