Thanks to all the individuals and groups whose support makes the Oxford Kinetics Festival possible.
We are delighted to be partners in this effort with the Oxford Community Arts Center, www.oxarts.org. They work tirelessly to promote the arts and offer a permanent home for the arts in the Oxford community.
The 2012 festival is possible thanks to a grant from ArtsWave, a fantastic Cincinnati organization supporting arts in the region’s communities.
Thanks to Miami University, Ohio, the School of Fine Arts and The Art Department for providing our great 2012 site, Millett Hall, allowing us indoor and outdoor space ample for all possible weather conditions.
