"Those noticing artful additions to New Orleans’ cityscape have the Joan Mitchell Foundation to thank. The New York-based art philanthropy funded the $750,000 public art project, 'Art in Public Places'. Currently, 19 of the newly commissioned works can be found around town. From Raine Bedsole’s “Remembering Boat” sculpture at West End Park to Jim Sohr’s playful Zor Bird at the Children’s Resource Library, artists’ creative visions became a reality with help from the Joan Mitchell Foundation. This project is part of the Foundation’s goal to convey art’s essential relationship to culture."
