2024 Art Shanty Projects
Bdé Umáŋ / Lake Harriet, Minneapolis, MN
Weekends, January 20 - February 11, 2024
10am - 4pm
We’re celebrating our twentieth year of weird and wonderful winters in 2024! We invite grown adults and kids of all ages to play / learn / grow / laugh / smile / sing / groove / gather with us in the Art Shanty village.
ASL interpreters and audio describers will be available on all festival dates from 11am – 2pm. More details coming soon.
CLASSIC SHANTIES ARE BACK!
Artists had great success with the exterior-only festival in 2022 and 2023, adapting with whimsical creativity and expanding the notion of what a shanty project can be! This year we have invited artists to continue that trend OR go back to classic shanties with interior experiences. We’ve got a mix – so if you’ve been waiting to cozy up inside with us, this is your year! And if you’re still not comfortable with that, we got you!
SUPPORT ARTISTS + ARTMAKING!
It takes a village to build a village, and there are many ways to actively participate! We’ll soon be seeking volunteers for the on-ice program – sign up for our newsletter to get announcements. You can also contribute as a member with an annual donation of just $25 or if you’re a local business, offer a cash or in-kind donation!
Map, Amenities & more coming soon!
