On My Own Time

On My Own Time (OMOT) program has been promoting and celebrating workforce creativity for over two decades.  In the last ten years alone, we have showcased over 3,600 works of art from nearly 2,000 employees at 26 unique companies and agencies.

CBCA facilitates juried employee visual art exhibitions at participating companies. Winners of the individual shows go on to compete in the Multi-Company Show at Republic Plaza. OMOT provides an opportunity to recognize and encourage employee creativity, stimulate dialogue and connections, and enhance your company culture.

There are 7 metro area organizations participating in OMOT 2015 representing a wide range of industries and business entities.

Join us in celebrating their artistic achievements at the Multi-Company Show Reception and Award Ceremony on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 5:30 pm in the lobby of Republic Plaza, in the heart of downtown Denver.        Brookfield Reception   Artwork 2   IMG_5233
