Lovers of New Orleans history, art, and architecture will not want to miss the tour of the Joan Mitchell Center, an artists’ residency program established by the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Tucked away on beautiful Bayou Road in the culturally diverse 7th Ward, the Joan Mitchell Center boasts an impressive campus that contains both a 1790s-mansion converted into offices and guest rooms as well as a state of the art and eco-friendly 8,000 square-foot studio space. In addition to the Artist-in-Residence Program, the Center curates and produces public programming that serves the broader community of New Orleans, and endeavors to serve as an incubator, conduit and resource for partnerships in the arts. As an alluring retreat destination for artists and a premier resource for arts programming, the Joan Mitchell Center reflects the importance of art and artists in rebuilding post-Katrina New Orleans.
