Oxford Community Arts Center
Oxford Community Arts group was formed in 1998. Community need for an arts facility had long been identified, and Miami University was about to dispose of the large, historic building that was once Oxford College for Women. A group of 12 formed a steering committee to save the building as a center for the arts in our area. The group was incorporated in 2001.
The Oxford Community Arts Center is a not-for-profit organization representing performing and visual community arts groups who wish to rehearse, perform, display, and teach their various art and craft forms in a facility that represents a permanent home for the community arts.
The Mission of the Oxford Community Arts Center is to ENRICH lives and build community by providing, celebrating, and promoting a diverse array of cultural and arts programming, performances, and exhibits; carefully PRESERVE the historic Oxford College building and campus as a welcoming environment offering classroom, studio, rehearsal, concert, theatre, and meeting spaces; and ENSURE the Center’s ability to serve future generations as a catalyst, connector, and magnet for emerging and established artists, performers, students, visitors, and arts organizations.
