Calling all artists: On My Own Time seeks entries from SU faculty, staff
The Office of the Chancellor and the Office of Human Resources are pleased to announce that SU will once again participate in the On My Own Time program, co-sponsored by the Cultural Resources Council of Syracuse and Onondaga County and the Everson Museum of Art.
On My Own Time (OMOT), now in its 39th year, encourages workplaces to celebrate the artistic creativity of their employees. On My Own Time 2012 is an opportunity for SU faculty and staff to share their artistic talents in a variety of media with the campus and larger community. The highlight is an in-house exhibit April 27–May 17 in the Noble Room of Hendricks Chapel.
Any SU employee is welcome to submit artwork for the exhibit. It will be judged by a group of SU faculty and staff, as well as by a panel of professional artists from the Cultural Resources Council. Artwork selected by the CRC panel will be featured in a public exhibit at the Everson Museum this fall.
Employees are invited to participate in this annual event in one of three ways:
1. Submit artwork for the exhibit. Criteria for submission and the registration form are available on the HR website. Art instructors may not submit work in their primary discipline. The registration deadline is Friday, April 13. All artwork must be display ready by April 26.
2. Volunteer to assist with setting up the exhibit. Any assistance is welcome, regardless of experience. Contact Sue Torrell-Szarek at 443-2099 or via email@example.com if you are able to volunteer an hour or more to help set up the exhibit on April 27.
3. Attend the exhibit (virtually or in person) and vote for your favorite piece. Again this year, you may view the art virtually on the HR website (starting May 1). Visitors to the exhibit and online viewers are invited to cast their vote for Best in Show.
