The Oxy Arts Speaker Series brings multidisciplinary LA-based artists to Occidental College to engage our community in conversation about their art, their inspirations, and why they do what they do in Los Angeles today and is made possible by the Arts and Urban Experience Initiative, which is generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.<br />
