In 2005, Mitch became the first American artist to officially travel on a U.S. Embassy Cultural Envoy to Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, where he traveled throughout the country lecturing about his work, and visiting and working with Turkmen artists on a joint American-Turkmen exhibition.

Most recently, Mitch was involved in the foundation and planning of the new Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) where he also filled the role of Assistant Curator until March 2007.
