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 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.
