Featured Project: Mansfield Art Center, Mansfield, OH

mansfield art centerThe Mansfield Art Center in Mansfield, Ohio was founded in 1945 as a nonprofit organization to host art exhibits and offer various art classes. The center occupied various temporary spaces until its permanent home was built in the early 1970s. Cleveland-born architect Don Hisaka designed the current structure as a a “tribute to simplicity of design and materials, intimacy of scale, and a harmonious relationship with the landscape and surroundings” according the Center.

Based on the need to accommodate an ever-growing arts community, Mansfield Arts Center began construction on its Arts Rising project in May of 2020. The project included 4,800-square-foot education wing, a pavilion for events and rentals, as well as renovations needed to the Marion Ave. building.

FINA Stoneworks partnered with Adena Corporation and The Seckel Group to produce over 4,100SF of FINA lightweight, honeycomb-backed porcelain panels with Laminam Calce Tortora porcelain by Crossville, Inc. The design for this exterior project featured a rainscreen application, large ribbon windows, angled cuts along sloped grade, factory bonded returns at corners, sills and jambs.

The project was completed in August 2020.
