ART FAIR 2014: MAY 9, 10 & 11


The spirit of community service has always been a part of Laumeier Sculpture Park and the annual Art Fair. Our goal is to offer volunteers a fun and satisfying experience and the knowledge that committing just a few hours can make a difference. The Art Fair would not be successful without your thoughtful generosity.
Please check your calendars for the weekend of May 9, 10 and 11. If you have a few hours to spare, we hope you will join us, and 200 other volunteers, in the production of this popular springtime event. There are many shift times and duties available. No experience is necessary and all information and materials will be provided. Volunteers must be at least 16-years-old or accompanied by an adult.
As an Art Fair volunteer, you will receive a Laumeier Sculpture Park volunteer t-shirt; Free admission to the Art Fair…browse the Fair before or after your shift!; Volunteer Appreciation Picnic with food, beverage and an attendance raffle with fantastic prizes, to be held on Thursday, May 8 from 5:00–7:00 PM; For students, credit toward community service requirements. Support your community, meet other volunteers and contribute to the success of Laumeier Sculpture Park.
