Art Shanty Projects is located on the beach. It takes place from mid-January to mid-February on Medicine Lake, not so far from downtown Minneapolis.

Art Shanty Projects is an artist-driven temporary community exploring the ways in which the relatively unregulated public space of the frozen lake can be used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be.

Participating artists and artist teams include: Knitting Shanty, MOSWAR Shanty, Norae Shanty, Postal Shanty, Shanty Of Misfit Toys, The Black Box Theatre Shanty, Abandoned Antarctic Shanty, Art Car Taxi, Giant Robot, Limnology, Snap Shot Shanty, Survival Shanty, The Green Easy, Big Fish Eating Ice Fishing House, IAMER, Ice Museum, Med Lake Drawing Club, Medicine Lake Fisheries, Mobile Shanty, Shanty on Wheels.
