Cannon Plaza Opens as Oxy's Newest Outdoor Venue

The Communications Office

The plaza can accommodate up to 250 guests in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Cannon Plaza, named for trustee and lead donor Anne Wilson Cannon '74, is Occidental's newest outdoor venue. In keeping with the College's practice of renovating and repurposing its historic buildings, the plaza preserves the colonnaded E.S. Field Building designed by Myron Hunt and converts what once was Taylor Pool into a courtyard and garden for outdoor gatherings. Equipped with a retractable shade structure for sunny days, teak patio furniture, a retractable screen and a built-in speaker system, the plaza can accommodate up to 250 guests.
