This site focuses on current artists and events at the Joan Mitchell Center. We are currently on a break between AIR seasons, so no artists are in residence at the moment. To learn more about the Center, past Artists-in-Residence and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, please visit our full site here.
Based in the culturally diverse and historic city of New Orleans, the Joan Mitchell Center’s mission is to support local, national, and international contemporary visual artists.
The Joan Mitchell Center is an artist residency center developed to offer both time and space for artists to create work in a contemplative environment. In addition to the Artist-in-Residence Program, the Center curates and produces public programming that serves the broader community of New Orleans, and endeavors to serve as an incubator, conduit and resource for partnerships in the arts.
Through providing a forum for artists, and acting as welcoming, inclusive gathering place, the Center aspires to be a place for creation, innovation and transformation, while supporting values of community, diversity and social equity.
