About ART SHANTY PROJECTS

Art Shanty Projects is an artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which relatively unregulated public spaces can be used as new and challenging artistic environments to expand the notions of what art can be.

Our 2018 On-Ice program was successful beyond our wildest expectations, welcoming more than 40,000 visitors to our new location on frozen Bde Unma/Lake Harriet in Minneapolis! Unfortunately, record-breaking attendance does not guarantee funding for future programming, and in 2019 we took a year off to reassess our financial wellbeing and have since taken steps to move toward becoming a self-sustaining organization. With an initial boost from an anonymous donor - and additional grants and sponsors that followed - we are thrilled to be back on the ice in 2020 and we look forward to bringing hope, fun, delight and joy to tens of thousands of visitors again.

It takes $170,000 to present our annual event and our sustainability depends on contributions from individuals like you. Your donation supports artist materials and stipends, a small and hardworking staff, plus permits and other production costs. We invite you to make a donation in any amount. At just $2/month you will begin to receive membership benefits.

Thank you for your support! We’ll see you on the ice.
