New Spaces 

Art Shanty Projects, one of Minnesota's most beloved winter activities, has selected a Minneapolis venue to present it's annual frozen festival for the first time in its 12-year history. Relocation of the 2018-2020 On-Ice Programs to Lake Harriet (Mde Unma) comes at the invitation and with support from Linden Hills Neighborhood Council (LHiNC), Minneapolis Parks & Recreation, and surrounding area businesses.

The move will situate the On-Ice Program in the heart of where the majority of existing participants live. The decision was made as part of efforts to reduce barriers to engaging new artists and provide greater accessibility for audiences through public transit.

New Faces

In addition to new spaces, Art Shanty Projects is currently seeking a new Executive Director to join Artistic and Community Outreach Directors in leadership of the organization. Applicants should read the job description for more details. The posting closes March 31 and the new hire is expected to be in place before the 2018 Call for Artists is sent out in late spring.
