Joan Mitchell Collections

The Foundation manages a collection of Joan Mitchell's artwork, comprised of significant paintings, works on paper, and prints from all periods of Mitchell’s career, spanning from student works to late canvases and pastels. The Foundation regularly works with museums and other institutions to ensure that a wide and diverse audience has access to Mitchell’s artworks through exhibitions, educational activities, and public programming.

The Foundation is currently supporting the research and development of a comprehensive touring retrospective exhibition of Mitchell’s work, co-curated by Katy Siegel and Sarah Roberts. The exhibition will open at the Baltimore Museum of Art in 2020, then move to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2021.

Aside from the Foundation's collection, Mitchell's artwork is held in numerous public collections, nationally and internationally.
