OCCCA has a multi-faceted, artistic identity. For the gallery-goer, the OCCCA experience is an antidote to ideology. The power of art is that it can change the world, one viewer at a time. In a fast-paced culture drowning in a torrent of images, art is an existentially authentic form of communication. OCCCA’s dedicated, hard-working members employ all contemporary media, including painting, sculpture, photography, assemblage, music, and installation, and when they exhibit together as a group, it’s one continuous party. To generate joy is perhaps art’s greatest power.

Founded in 1980, located in Santa Ana’s Artist Village, OCCCA is a non-profit, 501 (3) c corporation, dedicated to the pursuit of professional excellence in the arts, a constantly changing showcase for artists, educators, and community activists. OCCCA recognizes the importance of social engagement, global networking, intellectual exchange, critical dialogue, and the collaborative process. OCCCA is a think-tank for contemporary art, an incubator for new ideas. The independent artists who operate OCCCA are fond of unfettered experimentation, unafraid of grappling with difficult issues. OCCCA presents exhibitions of contemporary art, along with concerts, performances, art classes, symposiums, and publications. During its thirty-seven year history as an artist-run “alternative space,” OCCCA has exhibited the work of an impressive roster of artists and curators. Participants from all over the world apply to OCCCA’s legendary open calls for art, and fly in from distant cities to attend opening night festivities. Celebrate the first manifestation of the New Year’s promise, and join the artists of OCCCA for the opening of Inside/Out
