What Have You Created on Your Own Time?
The University will once again participate in the On My Own Time program, co-sponsored by CNY Arts and the Everson Museum of Art.
On My Own Time (OMOT), now in its 42nd year, enables businesses to identify and celebrate the artistic talent and creativity of their employees. The local program has become a national model for a rich programmatic partnership between the business and arts communities, nurturing creativity, encouraging personal growth and enriching quality of life both at work and at home.
On My Own Time 2015 is an opportunity for University employees to share their artistic talents and creativity in a variety of media with the campus and larger community. The highlight of the program at Syracuse University is an in-house exhibit that opens on April 24 in the Noble Room of Hendricks Chapel. The deadline for submissions for the show is April 17.
The exhibit may be viewed weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. through May 13. Anyone 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 CNY Arts. Artwork selected by the CNY Arts panel will be included in a public exhibit at the Everson Museum in the fall of this year.
Anyone interested in exhibiting artwork and/or volunteering to help make the event happen can contact Linda Pitonzo in the Chancellor’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 443-5235.
