Volunteer for BUTTER

Deadline: 08/29/2024

BUTTER needs volunteers!

BUTTER is America’s equitable fine art fair, showcasing the works of Black visual artists from Indiana and across the country. Founded in 2021 by GANGGANG, the immersive, multi-day, fine art fair invites guests to see and experience art and culture in new ways, while advocating for the care and economic viability of Black visual artists. As described by The New York Times, BUTTER serves as a new model for economic justice in the arts, aiming to sell or loan 100% of the exhibiting artworks, giving 100% of the proceeds to the artists. Unlike other art shows, BUTTER does not require a fee for artists to participate, nor does it take commissions. Open to families and the general public, the annual experience takes place on Labor Day weekend in downtown Indianapolis, highlighting historic Indiana Avenue and celebrating the enormity and brightness of Black creativity.
