The Office for the Arts at Harvard and Radcliffe (OFA) was established in 1973 with joint funding to coordinate and support the creative and performing arts at Harvard and Radcliffe. The Office was administered by Radcliffe College until Radcliffe and Harvard University merged in October 1999. At the time of the merger, the name of the office changed to Office for the Arts at Harvard. The Office oversees the Learning from Performers Program, the Jazz Program, the dance program, and painting, printmaking and pottery courses. It gives grants to students for music lessons, funds and coordinates student dramatic productions, and publishes Arts Spectrum, a bi-weekly calendar and Practice and Performance, a guide to the arts for undergraduates.
