Artist driven communities... Expanding the notions of what art can be.
Art Shanty Projects fosters construction of artist driven temporary communities that explore the ways in which relatively unregulated public spaces can be used to create new and challenging artistic environments. Working with local businesses, municipalities, and artists of all experience levels, we expand the notions of art and artist.
Art Shanty Projects is a nonprofit arts organization. Our livelihood depends on grants, donations, sponsorship, and volunteers. Through the valuable support of our donors, we can continue to offer free programming in a welcoming environment.
The On-Ice Program will transform the frozen surface of a Minnesota lake into a creative community space that is part art gallery, part art residency, and part social experiment every weekend in February.
We are excited to bring our program back to the ice! Please give what you can and thank you for your contribution.
