On My Own Time, a visual arts exhibit and competition, is open to employees of local businesses, educational and medical institutions, and governmental agencies. The intention of On My Own Time is to encourage and display artwork of talented employees whose work is created "on their own time," not at the workplace. Internally, the exhibitions can boost employee morale, showcase creativity, and facilitate employee recognition. Most importantly, creativity that might never be seen may be shared with a broader audience, enriching lives and the community as a whole.
The citywide exhibition opening on October 23 in the M. G. Nelson Family Gallery on the main campus of the SAA. The awards reception will take place on October 24. The exhibit closes October 30.
