Art Shanty Projects  An artist-driven community that expands notions of art. 2019 On-Ice Program - Lake Harriet (Bde Unma) - January 19-February 10 - 10am-4pm - Weekends

Art Shanty Projects was started in 2004 with one shanty, a few artist friends and a really fantastic idea. My, how we’ve grown! Photo: Shine On Photos

This is Marlaine, Operations Director of Art Shanty Projects. She is also a former shanty artist and board member. She has all the knowledge! Marlaine is our go-to for on-ice logistics, grants, communications, permits, machinery procurement, contract language, and program sustainability and excellence. You’ll recognize Marlaine by her ever-present walkie talkie! She is also an amazing welder. When she is not on the ice, you can find her at her metal shop and design studio.

This is Lacey, Artistic Director of Art Shanty Projects: spokesperson, fundraiser, creative collaborator, trainer, contract executor, graphic design director, newsletter writer, and relationship developer. If you asked her what’s going on, she would recite a list of 50 things she currently has in the Art Shanty hopper. Oh, and she is also a photographer, librarian and zinestress. Thanks for all that you do, Lacey!

This winter, we saw over 62 inches of snow. It’s been a long season but it made our time on the ice all the sweeter. Springtime, here we come!

We received over 4,000 responses to our audience survey and 70% were first-time visitors! #gratefulfornewfriends

Drum roll, please...! Opening day on Lake Harriet is January 19, 2019. Stay strong: frozen feet and intense windchills are mere months away. 📷: Jill Emmer

Last vestige of the ephemeral space we created together. Thanks for the memories!

With all the fresh snow, we have fresh resources for new creations. Who’s out there making and playing in the snow? 📷: Jill Emmer

The sun is shining. Winter has given us ample snow to play with.

What winter activities are you all getting up to?! 📷: @shineonyoucraydiamond
