Art Shanty Projects on Lake Harriet in January 2018

This year, Art Shanty Projects will be joining the Kite Festival on Lake Harriet for a fundraiser and community celebration featuring all-day art shanty performances, activities and art!

Last winter, Art Shanty Projects made its Minneapolis debut on Lake Harriet. The frozen art festival, featuring 22 artist-designed shanties and dozens of live performances, attracted more than 40,000 visitors to Lake Harriet.

Due to budget shortfalls, the Art Shanty Projects decided that it was not able to provide an on-ice program this winter, but intends to return to Lake Harriet in 2020.

To help make that happen, Art Shanty Projects invites you to stick around for a twilight after-party in a heated tent! Partake in bingo, raffles, s’mores and more – all to support the organization and next year’s event.

Partners currently include Linden Hills Neighborhood Council, Peace Coffee, and Pat’s Tap. Art Shanty Projects is coming out of hibernation this winter for just one day to celebrate the spirit of ASP and its return to Lake Harriet in 2020! Hope to see you there!
