How Emilie Brzezinski finds resilience through art

ArtSprings! Success — Thank You!

Many thanks to everyone who joined us Thursday night at our inaugural ArtSprings! Virtual Benefit! It was a wonderful evening of fun, inspiration, and celebration of the arts! We were thrilled to learn that Emilie Benes Brzezinski joined her daughter Mika for the event in Florida, watching Mika and her sons Ian and Mark, and daughter-in-law Ginny, for the official announcement of Brzezinski's gift to MPA.

“Mom’s art has inspired my brothers and me throughout our lives,” said Mika Brzezinski. “Now with MPA’s lead, her works can continue to inspire generations to come.”

“The entire MPA community is honored to receive this spectacular gift from Emilie Brzezinski and thrilled to work with the Brzezinski family in celebrating her vision of art in nature,” said MPA Executive Director Lori Carbonneau.

We are grateful to our ArtSprings! sponsors, special guests, live artists, Host Committee, and attendees, and excited to establish the next chapter of Emilie Benes Brzezinski’s spectacular body of work.

“She gave us a strong picture of what it was like to be a woman who knew her value and who was very, very proud of her identity as an artist,” said Mika Brzezinski, whose mom was honored by the McLean Project of the Arts on Thursday evening.

Join us for MPA’s ArtSprings!

My family and I are so thrilled that the McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) has accepted our gift of a significant collection of our mother, Emilie Benes Brzezinski's magnificent sculptures. Now with the help of the MPA, Bamba's work can continue to inspire generations to come in a place that we all once called home, that continues to be so near and dear to my entire family.

MPA is a 60-year-old community arts organization with a mission 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.

Please join us in supporting this important work, and celebrating the role of arts in building Community, Inspiration and Resilience, by purchasing sponsorships or tickets @mp4a and join us at 8pm on April 29th.
