The "On Our Own Time" art exhibit, which showcases the artistic talents of University employees, is marking two milestones: its 10th anniversary and the first time that University employees working in Phoenix have been able to enter.

The exhibit will be on display in the lobby of the Bioscience Research Laboratories from Feb. 3-15.

The exhibit is a partnership between the University and the National Arts Program, which works with organizations in more than 30 states to showcase the creative talents of those organizations' employees and their immediate family members. Organizations must have at least 3,500 employees to be eligible for support from the National Arts Program.

That support provides monetary prizes, which are awarded at a reception on the final day of the exhibit. The program accepts submissions in the classifications of amateur, intermediate, professional, youth and teen and manages the artist registration system through its website: https://www.nationalartsprogram.org/university-of-arizona/university-of-...
