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.

Art Shanty Projects Benefit at Fulton Brewery to Keep Y(O)ur Shanties On
On February 28, 2015, Art Shanty Projects held a benefit at the Fulton Brewery in Minneapolis to keep our shanties on ice.The evening was filled with entertainment by local musicians, special appearances by former shanty artists, raffle opportunities, food and beverage sales—all to benefit the organization. Our event was truly a success because Art Shanty Projects supporters (literally) walk on water. THANK YOU to our community of supporters. We look forward to seeing you on the ice in 2016!
