ANNUAL ART FAIR: MAY 8-10, 2015

 

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

 

The spirit of community service has always been part of Laumeier Sculpture Park and the Annual Art Fair. Our goal is to offer volunteers a fun and satisfying experience with the knowledge that committing just a few hours can make a difference. Art Fair would not be successful without the thoughtful generosity of its volunteers.
 
Please consider joining our staff and the other 200 volunteers in the production of this popular springtime event. There are a variety of shift dates, times and duties available. No experience is necessary, and all information and materials will be provided. Volunteers must be ages 16 and up or accompanied by an adult.
 
Art Fair Volunteers receive the following benefits:

 

  • Laumeier Sculpture Park Volunteer T-Shirt

  • Free admission to Art Fair

  • Volunteer Appreciation Picnic with food, beverage and an attendance raffle with fantastic prizes, to be held on Thursday, May 7, from 5-7 p.m.

  • Credit toward community service requirements for students
