City of Oil


The Oil City Arts Council is pleased to announce our participation in the Week of Giving event hosted by Bridge Builders Community Foundations. The Week of Giving was held March 19th through March 23rd. Thank you to all community members that followed along with us to raise awareness for this important initiative and for our own mission and needs. We surpassed our goal, raising a total of $557. Your generosity has made our participation in the Week of Giving a success and we are tremendously grateful.


The Oil City Arts Council (OCAC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the visibility of community cultural institutions and organizations and facilitating the development of community artists. Our purpose is to promote and foster the public interest and appreciation of all the arts. In seeking to support the arts, the Oil City Arts Council will endeavor to promote dance, theater, music, films and video, creative writing, poetry, painting, sculpture and other forms of the visual arts. To this end, the OCAC will organize, sponsor and facilitate concerts, lectures and workshops for the benefit of the entire Oil City Community and the Oil Region – children, young adults, families, and seniors.
