OxyArts is the recently launched arts initiative supporting the presentation of all arts disciplines on campus.
A key initiative of the College’s Strategic Plan, OxyArts promotes exhibition and programming practices that are vital to the College’s long-term vision for the arts, with particular emphasis on a robust collaboration with the city of Los Angeles. The program has been designed to engage the campus with a contemporary art dialogue via its Weingart Gallery, campus-wide interventionist art projects, and work developed over time by artists in residence. OxyArts aims to serve as an anchor for the Eagle Rock/Highland Park art scene, participate actively in Los Angeles’ art community, and cultivate a deeper understanding and appreciation of contemporary art throughout the Occidental community.
