2018 'On My Own Time' getting underway
This Autumn, the Everson Museum will once again mount an exhibit of artwork created by employees of local businesses. The 45th annual On My Own Time, developed in partnership with CNYArts, is a way to encourage creativity in the workplace and to support arts and culture in the community.
Getting to the October exhibit is a long process:

>April-June: Employers hold in-house art shows, 'judges' visit and select pieces for the Everson exhibit

The exhibit typically includes a diverse and unique selection of paintings, ceramics, wood, metal, and glass work, jewelry, photography, sculpture, textiles, and more.
