Organized by CNY Arts, in cooperation with the Everson Museum of Art, “On My Own Time” celebrates the creative talent of faculty and staff who are visual artists outside of work. The community arts program links the business and cultural sectors of Central New York to promote an appreciation of the arts and to recognize creativity in the workforce.
