Downtown Mantua Revitalization
Mantua Revitalization, DMRC, is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year. We operate with one major function—to promote and revitalize the Village of Mantua to become a village where people want to live and visit.
We hope you will join us at one of our sponsored events like Art on the Hill in July, the Reverse Raffle in April, Quilts in the Village in May this year. Our annual Photo Contest Winner Calendar goes on sale in the fall.
2018 Holiday Pop-up GALLERY
2018 will be year 2 for a Holiday Pop-up Gallery offering affordable gifts for your favorite people. This project is supported by the Ohio Arts Council and Portage Foundation. DMRC is in the midst of artist recruitment. The gallery will launch mid-November in a downtown storefront. There will be FREE arts workshops and performances on Saturdays and Sundays to celebrate the arts, artists, and our community.
If you are a local artist interested in showing and selling work, please complete an application of interest here.
Friends and Family may purchase a black powder coated bench with an engraved plaque dedicated in the name of someone special. Benches will be placed around The Village of Mantua in the Downtown area and Buchert Park.
