Chatfield College is gifted a Mark Schlachter sculpture

October 18th, 2013 Chatfield College is gifted a Mark Schlachter sculpture

A Folded Page, a sculpture by Cincinnatian Mark Schlachter, is now a part of Chatfield College’s St. Martin Campus in Brown County, OH. Chatfield College Board of Trustees member Paul Sittenfeld gifted the large, abstract piece to the College to add a new dimension to the scenic, rural campus. 

The artwork of Schlachter, a Green Township resident, is found in both private and public collections throughout the United States and internationally. The sculpture is on permanent display outside of the College’s Welcome Center. As Sr. Patricia Homan, OSU, Associate Dean and Site Director observes, “This artwork has created conversation and been well received by students and faculty.”

Schlachter shares that “The St. Martin campus is a beautiful place, but the art exhibited there is traditional, literal, figurative work. Folded Page adds a new perspective. It asks the viewer to invest imagination and thought to find meaning and message. It demands a new perspective - a new thought process, and isn’t that what Chatfield is all about?”

The Schlachter family has long supported Chatfield College at both the St. Martin and Findlay Market campuses. Growing enrollment at the two-year, liberal arts college has led to the purchase of an historic property on the corner of Central Parkway and West Liberty Street as the College’s future, permanent campus serving Cincinnati students. An ongoing $5 million campaign to fund the adaptive reuse of 1544 Central Parkway, upgrade the original St. Martin campus, and increase endowment and scholarships for students is underway. 

Sittenfeld and Schlachter both look forward to the opportunity of placing another piece of sculpture at the future Chatfield campus in Over-the-Rhine. The private, Catholic college offers students on both campuses the Associate of Arts degree.
