In addition to event programming, the Arts and Culture Commission oversees the artist relocation program and helps to provide affordable studio space for artists to work in downtown Oil City. Over 30 working artists have relocated to Oil City; 23 of these have purchased homes and now call Oil City home. Art Studios in the National Transit Building and Annex are available for artists to rent at very affordable rates. The studios are a great success with over 20 professionals producing their art. Stop by the studios on the second Saturday of every month for the studio artists’ open house from Noon to 5 pm. CLICK HEREfor more information about Artists in Oil City.
