Membership

Art Shanty Projects needs your support!

Art Shanty Projects is turning to the community for support to continue our program. We launched a membership program to give our loyal audience a new, important way to participate. Funds will keep the program free and accessible for visitors and fairly compensate artists for their work designing, building and programming the temporary community. Check out our video to see why. You can also contribute in-kind donations through our Amazon Wish List or by selecting Art Shanty Projects as your charity to support when you shop through Amazon Smile.
