Artist's Description

The first step in the effort to revitalize downtown Mansfield, Ohio was the creation of the Carousel District. The centerpiece attraction was to be a restored carousel open to the public. Opponents argued that the carousel would be a target of vandals and would attract undesirable elements to the downtown area- nothing could be further from the truth. Galleries and restaurants have sprung up, antique shops and yoga studios and recently a dance studio affiliated with the Mansfield Orchestra has been established. There is a working carousel shop that employs wood carvers and artisans who lovingly restore antique carousel animals and create new ones as well. There is an academy for fine and performing arts located in the district. In colder weather the doors are closed although the carousel is open for visitors. In warmer weather the doors are open and the sounds of the carousel can be heard for many blocks around the area. Mansfield may be a blighted community, but the Carousel District is a wondrous oasis of diversity and culture within the community.
