“On My Own Time” is a creation of CNY Arts (formerly the Cultural Resources Council of Syracuse) and Onondaga County, in cooperation with the Everson Museum of Art. It was developed as a community arts program to bring visibility to the creative skills of people employed in local businesses. SU is proud to participate in the 40th year of this program.
