Joan Mitchell Center FAQ

Residencies at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans are available for artists who have previously received a grant from the Foundation, as well as to New Orleans-based artists. Each Spring, eligible artists are invited to apply, and the link to the open call application for New Orleans artists is posted on this website. Residency awards are decided through a jury review process. 

The Joan Mitchell Center has a strong commitment to developing relationships with community members, organizations and institutions. Attending an event at the Center (such as a Community Coffee) is an ideal way to get a sense of the Center’s values, and to meet staff members. Please review the Community Partnerships page to learn more and email [email protected] with any requests for partnership.

The Center can occasionally host visiting guests in connection with our artist programs and community partnerships. From time to time we may be able to accommodate unsolicited requests based on availability and on program and community relevance. Please note, as part of the Center's new leadership transition, this policy is currently under review and more information will be posted as it becomes available. For more information on community partnerships or future site use, contact us at [email protected].

Any current opportunities can be found on the Jobs & Internships page of this website. Resumes may be submitted for consideration and will be kept on file.

We are open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm Central Standard Time.
