OxyArts is the recently launched arts initiative supporting the presentation of all arts disciplines on campus.
The recently formed OxyArts Office is a hub for the arts at Occidental College, supporting its exhibitions and public programming. OxyArts engages the campus with a contemporary art dialogue via its Weingart Gallery, campus-wide art projects, and work developed by artists in residence. Occidental College is committed to arts programming with a particular emphasis on a robust collaboration with the City of Los Angeles. Through OxyArts Occidental aims to serve as an anchor for the Eagle Rock/Highland Park art scene, actively participate in Los Angeles’ art community, and cultivate a deeper understanding and appreciation of contemporary art throughout the College community.
