On My Own Time: UNT Employee Art Exhibition

Jul 29 2013 (All day) - Aug 14 2013 (All day)

On My Own Time

In honor and appreciation of the creative talents of our staff and faculty, the University of North Texas is again participating this year in “On My Own Time” an annual, regional art competition featuring the artistic talents of people who work for companies, non-profit and governmental agencies throughout North Texas. This is an excellent opportunity to encourage and publicly recognize the creativity of our campus community! On My Own Time, now in its twenty-first year, is a program of the Business Council for the Arts.

The artworks will be exhibited at UNT on the Square in July and August. Winners in each of eleven categories such as painting, black and white photography and sculpture, are selected by regional 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 2013.

Thanks again to the support of Vice President for Administration and Finance Andrew Harris for sponsoring UNT’s participation. UNT’s exhibition is being coordinated by a Steering Committee including Charles Andrews, Rachel Grimes, Dilana King, and Hillary Talatzko from the Staff Council, Meredith Buie and Herbert Holl at UNT on the Square, and Robert Milnes, Dean of CVAD and chair of the UNT Art in Public Places Program.
