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 Artist Programs Associate (APA) provides administrative support and coordination for the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s artist-centered programs, which support contemporary visual artists. These include but are not limited to: grantmaking, professional development, artist legacy and early career artist programs; departmental initiatives, meetings, and related events. The APA works closely with program managers in the Artist Programs department in the Foundation’s New York City office, and reports to the Senior Director of Artist Programs.
