MADISON, WI -- The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art is recruiting more than 600 volunteers for the 50th annual Art Fair on the Square on July 12 and 13, 2008. One of the country's most recognized fine art fairs, Art Fair on the Square draws more than 200,000 visitors each summer. Art Fair volunteers can enjoy the fair on the beautiful Capitol Concourse while providing crucial support for the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art's most important fundraiser of the year.
  
Volunteers may choose from a variety of opportunities. Assignments include working at food and beverage concessions, and artist relief.
  
Volunteer shifts are approximately three hours long, allowing plenty of time to enjoy the fair. The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art encourages groups of friends, coworkers, and family members to volunteer together. Children ages 11 to 15 may volunteer with an adult. All volunteers receive coupons for free food and beverages for each shift worked. Volunteers who work three or more shifts receive a free Art Fair T-shirt!
