Mitchell has traveled the four corners of the world looking for inspiration, including the remote regions of India, Nepal, and the Middle East. This past year, he spent a month in Cuba, painting his experiences as they unfolded like snapshots, capturing the beauty of Cuba's landscapes and people on irregularly shaped canvases, reflecting -- perhaps -- the disarray of Cuba's political climate. Shown side by side the canvases fit together like puzzle pieces suggesting the continuity of beauty running across the great island.
A New York City native, Schorr's work was recently displayed at the 2003 Grammy Awards where it was featured in the Green Room of Madison Square Garden. Other Manhattanites may be familiar with Mitchell's 3-D mural entitled, "A Day at the Races", in Chinatown's Sara D. Roosevelt Park, commissioned by the NYC Park and Recreation Department. In fact, the City of New York, the Shine Mural Project, the National Arts Club, and New York-based Gen Art have all recognized and commissioned Mitchell's skills as a muralist. Pieces from Cuban Visions and other select titles will decorate this year's Tony Awards in its Green Room.
