The Oxford Community Arts Center adds vibrancy to the community, sparks creativity, and innovation, and brings joy to lift us beyond everyday experiences. Our Annual Gala raises more than $50,000 and provides nearly a quarter of OCAC’s operating budget.
Over the past 18 months, the Oxford Community Arts Center drew over 14,300 visitors to 517 events, including visual and performing arts programs, education workshops and classes, and community outreach partnerships such as Enchanted Winter. We have continued to adapt to the pandemic by providing online concerts on Virtual Second Fridays and co-hosting Musical Snacks with Bruce Murray.
Art Exhibits and Live Performances
The OCAC celebrated the creative voice of over 125 Ohio artists of the fine and performing arts. These artists not only helped us build our community, but also provided a positive emotional impact, started a conversation, and created life-long experiences for our patrons.
Classes, Workshops, and Events
Over 3,400 children benefited from OCAC classes and events. Students engaged in art both through the Art After School program and the Art-to-Go project, which delivered complete art kits to over 150 children in our community.
