4261537330_c09c8a5570_qArt 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.

Our On-Ice Program, held annually on a frozen lake in Minnesota, provides a unique opportunity for artists and performers to interact with audiences in an unintimidating, non-gallery setting.
