2012 was a challenging and exciting year for all of us, but, thankfully, WPA has enjoyed a number of successes and we are quite proud of our accomplishments. This year alone, WPA presented over 64 programs, exhibitions, and events serving over 1,200 artists and audiences in excess of 20,000, we were selected as a finalist for the Mayor's Art Awards in the category of Excellence in Service to the Arts, and was awarded a prestigious UPSTART grant by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

Exhibition highlights included Lines and Shadows, a memorial exhibition for artist Dan Tulk, WPA's boundary-stretching Experimental Media 2012, the performance series Take it to the Bridge, and the politically oriented Monument to the Unelected from artist Nina Katchadourian. And most recently, WPA's exhibition with Art Museum of the Americas The Ripple Effect: Currents of Socially Engaged Art.

WPA brought a variety of engaging programming to our members the arts community in 2012. Our Information Exchange program brought curators from around the world to DC artists, and our Professional Practices program helped artists price their work and learn about artist residencies. WPA partnered with several artists to host In The Studio, a series of intimate talks and studio visits with area artists. We took member work to the 2012 (e)merge Art Fair, and The Ripple Effect exhibition was mounted in conjunction with several related programs including an artist talk and tree planting ceremony.

All told, a busy year for WPA! We couldn't have done it without the incredible generosity contributions of our supporters, partners, and participating artists. We extend to them a heartfelt thanks. We can't wait to bring you an exciting year of programming in 2013, starting with Creating for the Future: Cataloging and Estate Planning for the Artist, a Professional Practices workshop that will help artists prepare for the future. And remember, there is still time to donate before the year ends. See you in 2013!
