We Did It!
We have raised 2.8 million for the Mansfield Art Rising Capital Campaign. Thank You to All of Our Donors for sharing the vision for the Mansfield Art Center Art Rising Campaign.
Because of your generosity, the art center and community will have a 4800-square-foot education wing which will provide more room for art classes, a lab for individual creativity, office and storage space, and a “hot zone” for the teaching of high-fire ceramics and glass art creation using state of art, university level kilns, glass blowing and casting.
A unique after-school program, titled Tyger STEAM, in conjunction with Mansfield City Schools, will incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) into teaching of ceramics and glass art. being developed in partnership with the State of Ohio and Mansfield City Schools utilizing our new education wing.
Adjacent to the art center will be a new, large pavilion. It will provide ample, covered seating in a park-like setting for special events, art shows, parties, entertainment, weddings, receptions and other feature activities.
We will also be repairing and renovating certain areas of the existing building. These would include a new catering kitchen, new restrooms, window repairs as well as lighting and a new sound system in the main gallery.
Kitchen renovations begin in late February and we are planning a groundbreaking ceremony at the end of May. Stay tuned!
