The first public viewing of the opulent, turn-of-the-century Sloter mansion in downtown Columbus will benefit the CCAD Scholarship Fund.
Scheduled for Sunday, April 17 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., the open house is at 475 E. Town St., in the city’s Discovery District. The home was left to CCAD by Ronald C. Sloter in 2007 and is across from the Topiary Park.
The college is partnering with Loth, Inc., Coalesse Furniture, and Maharam Textiles to allow visitors to view the historic home, including a room adorned from floor to ceiling in Rookwood Pottery tiles. Suggested admission is $5.
Hand-drawings and sketches by CCAD Interior Design students who used the architectural setting as a backdrop will be shown during the open house. Additionally, unique modern furniture is staged throughout the mansion, including Danish-inspired Hans Wegner pieces and the emu collection from Coalesse.
Loth Director of Sales John Myers said, “We are excited to not only be able to show off this treasure of Columbus architecture but to also highlight the work of the CCAD students.”
