CALL Project

Creating a Living Legacy

Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) is a program of the Joan Mitchell Foundation that provides support to visual artists in creating, through organizing and inventorying, comprehensive documentation of their artworks and careers. DiverseWorks was one of four organizations across the country awarded Mitchell Foundation grants to plan and implement this program. CALL employs emerging artists trained as Legacy Specialists to work with mature artists in the thorough documentation and preservation of their legacy.

As of 2014, CALL is administered by Studio One Houston under the fiscal sponsorship of Fresh Arts. DiverseWorks is proud to have launched this important initiative and looks forward to seeing its growth and evolution. For more information, email Patricia Hernandez at Studio One Houston.
