Bat Sculpture Takes Best in Show at Staff Art Exhibit

Wood takes on many forms at this year's "On Our Own Time" staff art exhibit – it illuminates, it symbolizes unjustified jealousy and it represents the UA's past.
 
With more than 60 pieces, this year's exhibit is on display through April 10 in the Union Gallery of the Student Union Memorial Center.
 
It kicked off March 20 with a lunchtime reception, during which the show's winners also were announced. Winning entries have ribbons affixed to them.
 
Visitors to the annual exhibit can also vote for their favorite work as part of the People's Choice selection process. That winner will be announced at the Awards for Excellence luncheon on April 10.
 
The Staff Advisory Council began presenting "On Our Own Time" in the early 1990s. Last year, the show drew support from the National Arts Program, which continued as a sponsor this year.
 
All exhibitors are UA employees or the immediate family members of UA employees. They could choose to enter as amateur, intermediate or professional.
