MANSFIELD, Texas —  The Mansfield City Council showed appreciation for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s downtown murals, which recently received a national award.

The City Council recognized the honor at its Aug. 22 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,” said 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,” said Methodist Mansfield President Juan Fresquez, Jr. “Being recognized nationally in marketing and advertising among our healthcare peers is a testament to the exceptional talent and expertise of our community and marketing team.”

One of the murals on 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. Another on Flying Squirrel Coffee Company depicts an artistic heart with wings on a rainbow sky background. The third mural on the second story of Hilltop Bicycle Center features a collage of colorful puzzle pieces that show a variety of athletes.

CONGRATULATIONS -- the laurels continue for the Methodist Mansfield Center's downtown murals. In addition to the 2022 Gold National Aster Award they received in August, the project won Gold in the Healthcare AD Awards. A national panel of judges were engaged in reviewing entries based on creativity, quality, message effectiveness, appeal, and overall impact. Over 4,300 entries were received for the 39th Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards program, and the mural trio in Historic Downtown Mansfield was recognized once again.
