Columbus, Ohio – The Columbus Arts Festival presented by Time Warner Cable is seeking volunteers to serve on the Coordinating Committee of the 2010 Festival, June 4-6.

The Coordinating Committee assists with several aspects of planning and execution of this annual event, produced by the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

Volunteers spend up to 100 hours working on the Festival from November through June, but commitment varies by committee. Volunteers also are largely responsible for the on-site execution of the event, requiring a significant time commitment the weekend of the Festival.

Committees work on various components of the Festival, including entertainment, artists’ market, volunteer recruitment, exhibitions, souvenirs and more. Experience in special events or with the arts is not necessary, but energy and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. These are working committees and require a strong personal commitment. Availability during the Festival dates is required.

Individuals interested in being considered for a Coordinating Committee position should send a resume and cover letter to: Amanda Teague, Columbus Arts Festival Coordinator, 100 E. Broad Street, Suite 2250, Columbus, OH 43215 or via e-mail to Deadline for application is Fri., Oct. 2, and prospective committee members will be contacted for an interview.

The Columbus Arts Festival is consistently ranked nationally as one of the country’s best. Now entering its 49th year, the 2010 Festival will feature fine art and fine craft from approximately 230 nationally acclaimed juried artists, along with continuous live entertainment, gourmet food and hands-on art activities for all ages.
