Volunteers needed for Stutz Artists Open House


INDIANAPOLIS — The Stutz Artists Association is recruiting volunteers for the 20th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House on April 26 and 27 at the historic Stutz Business Center.

Volunteers who work at least one three-hour shift will receive a free event T-shirt and admission to the two-day event. In addition to enjoying the art and atmosphere of one of the city's premier cultural events, volunteers welcome and direct guests to artists' studios or help entertainers move equipment. During set-up, volunteers help put up tables, signage, and trash boxes and escort food vendors and entertainers to their locations. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and will be asked to attend a one-hour training session.

At the event, more than 70 artists will be in their studios showing work that ranges from paintings, drawings, and photography, to sculpture, jewelry, and furniture. Hours are from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. April 26 and from 2-7 p.m. April 27 at the Stutz Business Center at 10th Street and Capitol Avenue downtown.

Admission is $15 at the gate and $10 in advance at select Old National Bank branches. Ticket proceeds support the Stutz Residency Program, which provides free studio space and utilities for emerging local artists.
