ART SHANTY PROJECTS

Artist driven communities... Expanding the notions of what art can be featuring an annual on-ice artist community

Art Shanty Projects is 501(c)(3) nonprofit artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which relatively unregulated public spaces can be used as new and challenging artistic environments to expand notions of what art can be. Our annual program is a unique on-ice program featuring artist designed ice houses and performances. Annually, we have over 10,000 people interact with our program over 4 weekends during January and February. 

Lake Harriet (Bde Unma) January / February 2019 • Dates TBA • Free & Open to the Public • Saturdays & Sundays • 10am - 4pm 

Open every weekend regardless of rain, sleet, snow, ice, blizzard
