Joan Mitchell Center Community Partnerships

Community Partnerships

The Joan Mitchell Center aspires to be an asset to an already culturally rich neighborhood in New Orleans. Working with a broad range of individuals and institutions throughout the city is integral to the Center's mission and goals. The Joan Mitchell Center is intentional and deliberate in developing reciprocal institutional relationships throughout the city and finding ways to partner on community-based projects.

In this capacity, the Center is occasionally available for public use and guest accommodations, with priority given to artists and non-profit organizations. In addition to several guest rooms, the varied spaces at the Center can accommodate many kinds of events, from a small retreat to a large benefit gala.

Please note: at this time the Joan Mitchell Center is reviewing its policies and will be not considering new requests for site use or accommodation. We will revisit this status again in September 2019. For more information on community partnerships or future site use, contact us at info@joanmitchellcenter.org.
