PUBLIC ART IS ESSENTIAL
We fearlessly do what we do to uplift art and joyful connection for our community of artists, neighbors, fans, and new friends (in the freaking coldest months). In return, a whopping 80% of Art Shanty Project's income & in-kind donations come from our community. We couldn't do it without this incredible show of kindness and reciprocity.
YOUR DONATION COUNTS!
We invite you to celebrate the human connections that are formed in creative community, in winter, in our beloved city, at Art Shanties. Our community event is community funded. Donations in any amount count! The radical generosity of many helps make it possible for all.
