These grants are given in recognition of artistic quality to artists chosen from a body of candidates put forth by nominators from the academic art community across the United States. In 2010, over 60 graduate programs were asked to nominate their top students. The nominated candidates' images were viewed for grant consideration through an anonymous process by a jury panel of art world professionals.

The Joan Mitchell Foundation:

The Joan Mitchell Foundation was established in April 1993 as a not-for-profit corporation following the death of Joan Mitchell in October 1992. The Foundation strives to fulfill the ambitions of Joan Mitchell to aid and assist the needs of contemporary artists and to demonstrate that painting and sculpture are significant cultural necessities.
    
Additional programs undertaken by the Foundation include free art classes for New York City youth, an annual grant to painters & sculptors, and grants to artists and arts communities in need of emergency support after a disaster.

The Joan Mitchell Foundation, Inc., is pleased to announce the twelve recipients of its first open application Career Opportunity Grant for New Orleans artists and projects.

Recipients were awarded specific amounts based on their project budgets, up to $5000.

Supported artists’ projects are:

David Borgerding is a sculptor who works in metal. The grant will go towards the creation of his first public sculpture to be constructed this fall. The grant will allow him to explore scale and material on a new level, and he hopes to leverage this project into future outdoor works.
