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 2018 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' 2018 On-Ice Program will take place on Lake Harriet. The project is free and open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am to 4pm, January 20-February 11.
Art Shanty Projects is offering stipends (up to $800), on-ice support and festival publicity to 20 performing artists.
