TownHall Shanty

White Bear Lake, MN

Hear ye, Hear ye, people of Art Shanty Town are invited to, well, name the town! Visitors to the Town Hall Shanty will be invited to participate in governing Art Shanty Town through opportunities ranging from creating a code of law to designing a flag and seal. Outside of the Town Hall Shanty is a village green for public discourse and celebrations.

TownHall Shanty is a project of an amazing community event held on Minnesota's frozen lakes in February. The mission: "Art Shanty Projects is an artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which relatively unregulated public spaces can be used as new and challenging artistic environments to expand notions of what art can be." This year you will find our shanty community on White Bear Lake.
