Mission Statement

The mission of A Studio in the Woods is to protect and preserve the Mississippi River bottomland hardwood forest and to provide a tranquil haven where artists can reconnect with universal creative energy and work uninterrupted within this natural sanctuary.

Description

Located in a unique wooded setting within the city of New Orleans, A Studio in the Woods has an established record of pairing land preservation with intimate artist residencies and connecting artists to the local community through creative discourse centered on environmental challenges. Infused with art, love, and a profound respect for nature, ASITW has grown with the forest as organically as it has grown into a nonprofit artist retreat and learning center, built sustainably with salvaged material long before green building became fashionable. In 1968, Joe and Lucianne Carmichael purchased the Lower Coast Algiers Site and sought to preserve the endangered forest for its great value as wetlands and as a powerful source of creative inspiration and education. In 2001, with the encouragement and consultation of artists, environmentalists, and wider community members, ASITW was formed.
