Since 2005, Art Shanty Projects has organized a month-long public art happening that transforms unregulated public spaces into interactive, artist-driven temporary communities expanding notions of what art can be.

The 2017 On-Ice Program will be located on the frozen surface of White Bear Lake February 4-26, 2017. Visiting the village is free and open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm. For updates and a schedule of events, please continue to check our social media outlets and sign up for our mailing list.
