On My Own Time: UNT Employee Exhibition

Event Date: 
Jul 28 2014 (All day) to Aug 9 2014 (All day)

WHAT IS ON MY OWN TIME?

On My Own Time (OMOT) is an annual, regional art competition featuring the artistic talents of people who work for companies, non-profit and governmental agencies throughout North Texas. Each year, area companies and organizations hold in-house exhibitions featuring artwork that was created outside of working hours by their employees. Winners in each of eleven categories such as painting, black and white photography and sculpture, are selected by arts experts who act as jurors. In addition, the jurors select a Best of Show winner. Employees are asked to vote for a “People’s Choice” awardee.

Works that have been awarded a First Prize and Best of Show in each category are selected to move on to the regional exhibit, where the best artworks from all of the companies involved are exhibited together at NorthPark Center during September 2014.

Never shown artwork before? Don't worry! This is an open exhibition, no experience necessary. Sorry, student assistants/employees are not eligible.

On My Own Time is a trademarked program of Business Council for the Arts.
