SAINT LOUIS ART FAIR PRESENTED BY CENTENE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION INTERNSHIPS
The Saint Louis Art Fair presented by Centene Charitable Foundation is an annual celebration of the visual and performing arts featuring artists from the St. Louis area and across the world. On September 8, 9, 10, 2017, 181 visual artists that have been selected by a distinguished panel of judges will exhibit and sell their original work in booths located on the streets of Clayton’s central business district. The Art Fair also features the children’s “Creative Castle” which gives children the opportunity to participate in structured art activities designed to stimulate the creative process. Professional performing artists and ensembles entertain audiences on three different stages offering a greater understanding of the arts. Additionally, an impressive array of fine foods, served by some of St. Louis' finest restaurants, will fill the festival's culinary arts row, the Pleasures of the Palette. Over 130,000 people attend this event each year.
The Internship experience:
- Offers practitioners the chance to provide expertise relative to theory and practice obtained in the classroom setting;
- Offers the opportunity to improve in-service training for permanent employees;
- Allows CF an opportunity to survey and evaluate prospective employees;
- Provides opportunities to establish cooperative relationships which extend beyond the Internship program.
The Art Fair's team approach to special event management mandates that all interns possess a keen sense of self-motivation, the proclivity to work positively with a variety of personality types and leadership styles, the ability to be flexible and to embrace change. Interns should possess and demonstrate a high standard of integrity and professionalism.
The internship is full-time with an opportunity for a stipend.
