The Joan Mitchell Foundation, in collaboration with CUE Art Foundation, is pleased to announce an exhibition of its 2011 MFA Grant Program Recipients. From June 7 - July 28, the 15 recipients will be showing current artwork at CUE Art Foundation.
The annual MFA Grant Program was created in 1997 to assist painters and sculptors who are receiving their MFA degrees. With these grants the Foundation aims to further the recipients' artistic careers and to aid, upon graduation, in the transition from academic to professional studio work. A complimentary catalogue, available at CUE's gallery, has been published on the occasion of this exhibition. The catalogue features works and bios for each artist and essays on their work by three writers: Kareem Estefan, Megan Hoetger, and Wendy Vogel.
