At the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans, we offer artists dedicated time and space for the creative process through one- to five-month residencies. Artists have opportunities to engage with arts professionals, partner arts organizations, and others in the community.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the residency program for Fall 2020 and 2021 is focused on studio space and virtual programming for New Orleans-based artists. For 2022, the Center will resume its residency model of hosting both national and local artists.
- A private studio in either the Spring or Fall residency session
- Weekday meals
- A $600 monthly stipend
- A range of professional development and public engagement opportunities
My residency at the Joan Mitchell Center was an experience that exceeded my expectations on many levels. The connections and reconnections that I formed during my residency were numerous.”
