Joan Mitchell Center



The Joan Mitchell Center is a program of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, which celebrates the life of abstract artist Joan Mitchell by expanding awareness of her pioneering work and fulfilling her wish to support and provide opportunities for visual artists.

Complementing the Joan Mitchell Foundation's grant programs, the Joan Mitchell Center was developed to host artist residencies, providing working and living space on a two-acre campus in the historic and culturally diverse city of New Orleans.

In addition to the Artist-in-Residence Program, which welcomes local, national, and international artists, the Center produces public programming for the broader community of New Orleans, and serves as an incubator, conduit, and resource for partnerships in the arts.
