INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 7, 2012) – Adults 18 and older who enjoy one-of-a-kind Indiana art and artisan food and wine are sought to volunteer for the second annual Indiana Artisan Marketplace March 31-April 1 at the Expo Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

In addition to enjoying the art and food, volunteers may help with such hospitality tasks as greeting guests, taking tickets, helping in the Artisan store or answering questions in the information booth. Artisan assistants will get a behind-the-scenes look at the show and a chance to meet the people who create the food and art.

Volunteer assignments may include helping artisans move in and out of the show, sitting at a booth when an artisan takes a break or roaming the show floor to lend a hand wherever one is needed. All volunteers receive a T-shirt and free admission to the show.

More than 125 artisans from Indiana and an additional 75 artisans from Kentucky will showcase art and food selected as being among the best in their state by food and art jury panels created by Indiana Artisan and Kentucky Crafted. Food and art jury panels select each artisan, which include painters, beekeepers, woodworkers, winemakers, jewelry designers, weavers, makers of specialty cheeses and more.

In addition to browsing the booths, visitors will enjoy Indiana music, live art and craft demonstrations, and food and drink tasting. Admission is $10, and children 7 and under are free.

Applications are due by March 9.
