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.
This fall Occidental is proud to host Lucky Dragons, an artist collective comprised of Luke Fischbeck and Sarah Rara, as the first semester-long Wanlass Artist in Residence. While on campus, they plan to teach; host speakers and performers; and create interventions on campus. To learn more about Lucky Dragons, visit their website.
