Art Shanty Projects’ 2018 on-ice program was successful beyond our wildest expectations. More than 40,000 people visited our new location on the frozen Lake Harriet/Bde Unma in Minneapolis. Recently, the Board learned that Art Shanty Projects was unable to secure the major grant funding needed to cover a significant portion of our expenses for the 2019 program. In our current funding situation, it is not possible to present a 2019 on-ice program along the lines of last year’s program.


We are hosting two community meeetings where we are seeking your input to help guide the future of Art Shanty Projects.

Whether you're an artist, performer, volunteer, long-time shanty-goer, or a new fan.. please join us!

Tuesday October 23, 6pm at the Red Stag Supper Club

Sunday October 28, 3pm at Can Can Wonderland

If you need ASL interpreting or captioning to participate in the meeting, please contact us three or more days prior to the meeting, and we will arrange accommodation.
