One More Week to Register


There is still time to become part of our 42nd annual On My Own Time business/arts program, presented by CNY Arts in cooperation with the Everson Museum of Art. This homegrown, award-winning project provides a public platform for participating businesses to identify, celebrate, and promote the value of creativity among their employees and in the Central New York community as a whole.

The final program commitment date is April 30.

Each participating company will hold an exhibit at its business site consisting of works created by its employees who are amateur artists "on their own time". This exhibit can be scheduled any time during April, May, or early June, and will be adjudicated by local volunteers who work professionally in the arts. The volunteer panel will select several pieces from each company's exhibit to become part of a month-long On My Own Time exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art this fall. As a finale to this year's program, and to celebrate the opening of the Everson exhibit, a reception will be held there for company representatives, selected artists, and their guests.

There are several levels of sponsorship offered, so the program is affordable for any size company or organization! (Smaller companies can participate jointly, split the participation/sponsorship fee, and hold one exhibit at either work site.)

Your company will receive a full page in the On My Own Time catalog, which is distributed to the public during the run of the Everson Museum of Art exhibit. Participating company names are also included in CNY Arts press releases and newsletters, as well as on the CNY Arts website, social media outlets, and signage at the Everson exhibit. There is also an opportunity to become a lead sponsor.
