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.

During Summer 2021, Oxy Arts is partnering with Clockshop for a programmatic collaboration around their public installation, Pansa del Publico, to bring together community, artists and cultural projects through socially conscious dialogue and engagement. On June 19 + 26 and July 10 public activations will take place amplifying the work’s focus on collective action by inviting community members to share stories, food, and experiences together.
Over a 3-month period, artists Nancy Baker-Cahill, Audrey Chan, Joel Garcia with Meztli Projects, Patrick Martinez and Kandis Williams will research and consider the future of monuments. Each artist will conceive an original virtual monument to be geo-located at a site in the city of Los Angeles.
