Joan Mitchell Center Programming

Joan Mitchell Center Public Programs

As part of the Joan Mitchell Center's commitment to provide a forum for artists and to be a welcoming, inclusive gathering place for artists and the broader community of New Orleans, the Joan Mitchell Center curates and produces a range of public programs.

Open Studios and Artist Talks are key elements of the Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Program. During Open Studios, the public is invited to view work in progress and engage directly with the resident artists. Artist Talks offer more in-depth presentations by visiting artists, allowing greater insight into their work and process.

Community Coffee serves as an open house for the Joan Mitchell Center and as a networking space for the New Orleans community. Community Coffee offers an opportunity for artists, curators, writers and arts administrators staying at the Joan Mitchell Center to connect with locals in the neighborhood.
