Art Shanty Projects

Art Shanty Projects, a four-weekend art festival created atop frozen Bde Unma/Lake Harriet, will return in January 2022. Artists will create a vibrant winter village with almost twenty temporary structures and dozens of interactive art experiences.

From January 15 through February 6, Art Shanty visitors can head to the north end of the lake near the bandshell on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m–4:00 p.m.

In light of the pandemic, this year’s festival will offer an exterior-only experience for visitors, and masks will be strongly encouraged. There will be a suggested donation of $10-20 at the gate; funds will support future festivals.

The Linden Hills Neighborhood Council is excited to again be a major sponsor of this great community event. Stop by to check out our Linden Hills Neighborhood Shanty!
