Join us on August 2 to celebrate the opening of the second annual Joan Mitchell Foundation Alumni Council Exhibition, hosted by the CUE Art Foundation. Entitled TRANSPARENCY, this exhibition features work by 15 artists who are alumni of the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Art Education Program. Alumni were challenged to consider the theme of "transparency," traversing the many meanings of the word, and contribute work within the theme that highlights their talents and pushes the bounds of their practices as young artists. The resulting exhibition ranges in content from interpersonal intimacy to sociopolitical tragedy.

About the Joan Mitchell Foundation
The Joan Mitchell Foundation celebrates the life of abstract artist Joan Mitchell by expanding awareness of her pioneering work and fulfilling her wish to support and provide opportunities for visual artists. Through grants, residencies, and related initiatives, the Foundation advances the work of today's artists and amplifies their essential contributions to communities around the world.
The Foundation's grant programs include the Painters & Sculptors Grants, Emerging Artist Grants, and Emergency Grants, all of which provide recipients with unrestricted funds. Its New Orleans-based Joan Mitchell Center hosts residencies for national and local artists, as well as public programs such as artist talks and open studio events that encourage dialogue and exchange with the local community. The Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) initiative provides free and essential resources to help artists of all ages organize, document, and manage their artworks and careers. Together, these programs, along with additional professional support services, actively engage with working artists as they develop and expand their practices.
