Joan Mitchell Center Residency

Awarded a 2020-2021 residency at the Joan Mitchell Center

The Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Artist-in-Residence Program offers a wide range of resources, guided by Joan Mitchell’s vision to provide artists with the necessities of time and space to create their work. To complement its grant programs and deepen its relationships with artists, the Foundation opened the New Orleans-based Joan Mitchell Center in 2015 to host artist residencies, providing working and living spaces on the Center’s two-acre campus. The Artist-in-Residence Program at the Center provides the crucial elements of time and space for artistic contemplation and experimentation while offering artists opportunities to engage with arts professionals, partner arts organizations, and others in the community.

“The Artist-in-Residence program connects directly with Joan Mitchell’s vision of supporting future generations of artists. With the residency, we are committed to offering a combination of resources that speak to the different and layered needs of today’s artists, from financial support to physical space to access to networking and community connections. We are always excited by the work and ideas that emerge from the artists during residency, and are delighted to welcome our 2020 class,” said Christa Blatchford, Chief Executive Officer of the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
