Washington Project for the Arts
Established in 1975 by pioneer Alice Denney as an artist service center, WPA was part of the grassroots movement of “alternative artist spaces.” Today, WPA is the largest visual arts-based membership organization in the DC area and serves as a catalyst for contemporary art. WPA is both an artist service organization, supporting artists at all stages of their careers, and a presenting organization, promoting contemporary art through exhibitions and programs that stimulate public dialogue on art and culture. WPA presents between 60 and 70 free workshops, exhibitions, artist education programs, and contemporary art events annually, serving over 120,000 artists and art appreciators each year.
