Calling all artists! “On My Own Time” Slated for September

This fall, LLCC will once again be participating in the Springfield Area Arts Council’s On My Own Time (OMOT) program. This unique program provides LLCC faculty and staff an opportunity to display original art they have created outside the office, truly, on your own time. There will be an in-house exhibit at LLCC and the city-wide exhibit at the Springfield Art Association showcasing first place award-winning artwork from all participating businesses, agencies and institutions.

LLCC’s in-house exhibit will be featured this year in the L. Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Museum.  Mr. Trutter was a Springfield architect with a lifelong love of art, even taking classes here at LLCC well into his 70s.  This exciting exhibit will showcase LLCC’s OMOT works, some of Mr. Trutter’s artwork created on his own time, as well as a few pieces of the Trutter world collection.  The LLCC community is invited to the opening exhibit which will be held Thursday, Sept. 21.

Faculty and staff may enter up to three artworks each, created since 2014, for a fee of $5 per entry. The fee assists with costs of the OMOT program. Artwork and registration fees will need to be submitted by Wednesday, Sept. 6. 

So spend time this summer using your imagination and skills to create new artwork! Find a detailed list of the categories, as well as the rules: 2017 OMOT Categories and Descriptions   2017 OMOT Rules
