The Mansfield Art Center facilitates and supports the artistic development of the members of our community through focused instruction and access to the works of thousands of professional artists. Our new Education Wing offers art classes in: glassblowing, stained glass, drawing, painting, ceramics, silk painting, jewelry making, print making, fiber arts, rug tufting, 3d printing, and design technology. This award-winning addition features vaulted ceilings and modern floor to ceiling windows that allow for an abundance of natural light and open workspace in the state of the art studios. Exhibitions are featured in the work of art that is Don Hisaka’s original architectural edifice. This incredible structure won a Progressive Architecture National Citation Award in 1971 for its innovative beauty. Visitors enjoy two floors of open galleries amidst a wood hewn atrium, a Gallery Shop highlighting the handcrafted work of local artists, and many exhibitions featuring original art throughout the year.
Since our beginning in 1945 as The Mansfield Fine Arts Guild, we have grown to not only show the work of local and regional artists but have expanded to also house exhibitions of nationally and internationally renowned artists. The Mansfield Art Center continues to build on our rich history and pursue our mission of enhancing lives through the arts.
