DALLAS — The Oak Cliff Cultural Center (OC3) is set to celebrate over 10 years of arts, culture, and service to the community on Aug. 28 after canceling last year due to COVID-19. The cultural center and the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture are rewinding to celebrate the 10-year anniversary with the community. For over a decade, OC3 has carried on a tradition of cultural service, and ushered in a new era of artistic and cultural opportunity with its art gallery and a multi-purpose studio.
"The Oak Cliff Cultural Center has been a strong community hub for the last 10+ years,” said Oak Cliff Cultural Center Manager Rafael Tamayo. “It has provided some of the most impactful arts and cultural experiences to our city and its growth is a true testament of the diverse, talented, and creative spirit that Dallas embodies."

"The staff at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center have created a safe space for all artists,” said Community Artist Priscilla Rice. “The OC3 is the heart and soul of where art happens in Oak Cliff. It truly has been an incubator for emerging artists and a dope spot where seasoned artists have the opportunity to share their work with community. The OC3 is truly about the community and for the community.”
