The Joan Mitchell Center just underwent a big renovation of its Treme campus, including upgrades to its historic buildings by Jonathan Tate and a modern new 8,000-square-foot studio building by Lee Ledbetter. You can scope out the renovations for yourself on the center's two-acre campus at a grand opening celebration this Saturday, Aug. 22 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The big addition to the campus is the Ledbetter-designed studio space, a striking modern structure with spare, high-ceilinged studios. They are working to attain LEED certified building, which was built with rainwater management in mind.
If you can't make it this weekend, the center frequently hosts events, including a monthly Community Coffee open house and "town hall" events.
