Art Shanty Projects

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


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

For four weekends in February, the 2017 On-Ice Program will transform a frozen lake in Minnesota into a village of ice fishing shanty-like structures designed and built by artists. Outdoor performances, games, and inventive cold-weather activities animate the space for curious locals, regional artists, and visitors from beyond our borders.

Art Shanty Projects' 2017 On-Ice Program will take place on White Bear Lake. The project is free and open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am to 4pm, February 4th-26th, 2017. 

Art Shanty Projects is offering stipends (up to $800), on-ice support and festival publicity to 10-15 selected performing artists.
 
Deadline for applications: Midnight CST - Wednesday, August 31, 2016.
