The Joan Mitchell Center on Bayou Road


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 aspires to be a place for creation, innovation and transformation; supporting values of community, diversity and social equity; providing a forum for artists and to be a welcoming, inclusive gathering place for the arts and the broader community of New Orleans.


The core program of the Center will be an artist in residence program, which will offer both time and space for artists to create work in a contemplative environment, as well as provide opportunities for visiting artists to engage with the local arts community and experience the rich cultural possibilities of New Orleans.
