In 2001, The Oldham County Board of Education purchased the former Crestwood Baptist Church on Floydsburg Road in Crestwood for the purpose of developing the Oldham County Schools Arts Center. The Arts Center is truly a unique institution that provides arts and cultural opportunities to nurture its students and the community at large. Operating as a visual and performing arts school for our students and our community, the Arts Center has proven to be highly effective in providing arts education for everyone. Our Performance Hall, Music, Art and Dance Studios, and Anita Davis Art Gallery all buzz with energy as students, community groups, artists, teachers and the public create art and enjoy learning.
OCEF provides nearly $68,000 to the OCSAC for facility enhancements including a new marquee for the building.
OCEF acquires over $7,300 to support performance and programming needs of the OCSAC.
INVESTMENT IN OCSAC
In the spring of 2008, OCEF was able to fulfill the desire of the Oldham County Schools Arts Center for a new performance piano. Working with the Oldham County Board of Education, OCEF was able to locate and purchase a Schimmel Grand Piano. The beautiful piano was dedicated in a celebration concert featuring the music of several talented pianists.
