Our Mission: Enriching the lives of children, families, and adults through art exhibitions and art education programs for all.
If you’re on this website, you likely enjoy the arts, and love to visit cultural and historical institutions, museums, botanical gardens, and places exhibiting science and technology wonders! We love museums too, which is why we are excited to announce that, new with our membership this year, members will receive individual membership benefits to over 750 North American museums! Through NARM, the North American Reciprocal Museum Association, all current Mansfield Art Center members or any new members will receive individual NARM benefits in addition to the many benefits offered with a MAC membership! Special advantages offered within the 750+ network of institutions include free or member admission, discounts at museum shops, and discounts on concert or lecture tickets (restrictions will vary).
So why not make it in your resolutions this year to become a MAC member! In turn, there is incentive to explore and visit more museums. There are several NARM museums which are located in Ohio (see infographic on left), and there are hundreds throughout North America. If you have travel or vacation plans for any time this year, you may want to add a museum to your agenda. Simply present your MAC membership card with the NARM identification to receive the member benefits of participating institutions. For a complete list and more information, you can visit the NARM website by following this link.
By joining NARM’s program, MAC continues to reach the goals of its mission. The MAC offers several levels of memberships, beginning from $25 annually to $1000 per year. All the memberships include the NARM benefits. As a MAC member, you will also receive discounts on classes and workshops, a subscription to our newsletters and course guides, and invitations to previews, openings and events. We have a great year of art educational classes lined up and there will be previews and opening events you won’t want to miss! Read what’s in store for 2017 at the MAC, here.
As many of our readers well know, The Mansfield Art Center is a non-profit. This means the capacity to operate and continue forward with our mission is largely due to funding from grants, donations, and memberships, as well as fundraisers and to the many volunteers who give up their time. We have a lot of fun here, too, because, by not being profit driven, we can focus on hosting fine art exhibitions and offering art educational programming, which in turn enriches the lives of the people in our community and beyond. In other words, it’s like a two-way street: when you donate, or become a member, you can enjoy special benefits and discounts; and, we get to continue doing what we love!
