The Mansfield City Council recently showed appreciation for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s downtown murals, which have won national recognition.
The City Council noted the honor at a late-August meeting. The medical center received the national Aster Gold Award for its downtown mural program. The medical group worked with downtown businesses and Murdoch Partners to create three distinct pieces.
“These beautiful works of art celebrate Mansfield,” says Mayor Michael Evans “We are thankful to have such an involved corporate citizen like Methodist Mansfield here in our town.”
The Aster Awards is one of the largest and most respected national competitions of its kind. This elite program has recognized outstanding healthcare professionals for excellence in advertising/marketing for more than 21 years.
“We are honored to receive this award on behalf of our city and marketing teams,” says Methodist Mansfield President Juan Fresquez, Jr. “Being recognized nationally among our healthcare peers is a testament to the exceptional talent and expertise of our community and marketing team.”
“Mansfield Legacy” by Eddie and Mary Phillips on the Mansfield Historical Museum and Heritage Center, pictures a woman walking across Main Street from one side of the roadway representing the Main Street of yesterday toward a modern vision of downtown Mansfield. The mural “Love Your Vibe” by Jerod “DTOX” Davies on Flying Squirrel Coffee Company depicts an artistic heart with wings on a rainbow sky background. “Jigsaw Puzzle” also by Eddie and Mary Phillips on the second story of Hilltop Bicycle Center features a collage of colorful puzzle pieces that show a variety of athletes.
