CNY Companies Invited to Join On My Own Time 2016

172 employees of Central New York companies took part in On My Own Time 2015, which concluded on a high note this fall with a reception for artists, colleagues and family at the Everson Museum of Art. The amateur artists exhibited a total of 370 pieces of visual art at their work sites last spring. Their colleagues and OMOT adjudicators were treated to work site exhibits of original pieces created by these very talented artists in a variety of media, such as oil painting, photography, ceramics, fabric art, jewelry, and woodwork. Selected pieces were then displayed in a month long special exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art.

We are very grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our On My Own Time partner, the Everson Museum of Art, 2015 Gold level sponsors Upstate Medical University and WRVO Public Media, and Silver level sponsor, the Syracuse City School District.

Companies of all sizes can take part in this invigorating, fun, and affordable annual program that celebrates individual creativity in the work place and underscores the importance of the arts to our community's quality of life. Registration for On My Own Time 2016 begins soon, with a kickoff luncheon held in March. For more details, visit weare.cnyarts.org or email: omot@cnyarts.org.
