Joan Mitchell Center Studios

The ten studios at the Joan Mitchell Center range in size from 215–780 square feet and are all private. While lighting can be adjusted, all spaces get ample natural light throughout the day. Our facilities are best suited to those with a primarily indoor studio practice who work on walls, tables, easels, or floor surfaces, though there are occasional opportunities to work on the lawn, weather permitting, provided materials or objects do not negatively impact the landscaping and are not left outside when not in use.

All studios are equipped with a worktable, shelving unit, work chair, and recliner chair, and studios 1–9 also have utility sinks. Studio spaces are assigned based on each artists’ specific needs, including the scale and type of work being made.
