On My Own Time at Syracuse University opens with an in-house exhibition on April 30 in the Noble Room of Hendricks Chapel. It will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m.– 5 p.m. through May 16.
A panel of professional artists assembled by CNY Arts will serve as judges. Artwork selected by the panel will be featured in a public exhibit at the Everson Museum this fall.
