About ART SHANTY PROJECTS

We've done a lot of internal work during the pandemic, and are excited to share our new mission with you!

Mission
Art Shanty Projects intentionally creates an impermanent art village on Minnesota lake ice amid changing climate and environment. With a spirit of embracing challenges through creativity, we support an ecosystem that inspires everyone to create and participate in art, thrive in winter, and build community.

2022 Program
After a pandemic pause, WE'RE BACK! The On-ice Program will take place on Bde Unma (Lake Harriet) from 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, January 15 – February 6, 2022.

Art Shanty Projects is a joyful expression of public art, and we have a commitment to prioritize public health in our operations. In the spirit of abundant caution and love for our community, we are offering an EXTERIOR-ONLY EXPERIENCE for visitors in 2022. With artist input through a design charrette process last January, this year will feature shanties that can be engaged with from the outside or in the open air and more performances and art actions than ever before, including more focus on movement activities to keep folks warm. We hope to see you there!

ALL MEMBERS ARE INVITED TO THREE SHANTERRIFIC OUTDOOR PARTIES!

Membership Launch Party: featuring delicious drinks, a hot potato bar, music, and Art Shanty trivia. This is OUTSIDE on the patio at Lake Monster Brewing on Thursday, November 18, 6-8pm. All are welcome to join, but members get free tap drinks courtesy of Lake Monster and are eligible to win most excellent prizes including gifts from artists, Northern Fires Pizza, Ice Castles, Hook & Ladder, and Cry Baby Clay! Wear your wildest, most shantastic outfit for a chance to win the grand prize of the night: a 2 hour session at Cry Baby Clay for up to 6 people!

Member Night On Ice: an intimate chance to see the shanty village after dark. Enjoy hot food and drinks, bonfires, and cool company with the artists. Date and time will be revealed to members in January.

Wrap Party: This is a post-program celebration for the artists! Date / time / location (outdoors, covid-conscious) will be revealed to members in January.
