Current & Upcoming Programming

Oxy Arts builds community through innovative and inclusive arts experiences.

Our efforts are rooted in four core values—connection, collaboration, community and creativity. Committed to serving both the Occidental community and our neighboring communities beyond campus, Oxy Arts programs across creative mediums, featuring guest speakers, workshops, visiting artists and performances. Our programs are rooted in the belief that the arts have a unique ability to engage people in socially conscious dialogue.
