Meetup Description: Located on frozen Medcine Lake in Plymouth, MN, The Art Shanty Projects present a six-week exhibition of architecture, performance, science, art, video, literature, karaoke and even a little bit of ice fishing.
The acclaimed Art Shanty Projects is back on the ice for a fabulous sixth year. From January 17 - February 14, 2009, over 60 artists from Minnesota and around the country will display a village of Art Shantyies (Ice Fishing Shanty + Art Gallery/Studio). Check out the photos at the Art Shanty Project
Artist projects this year include a karaoke shanty, a performance theater, a structure full of bicycle-powered fixtures, a knitting shanty, a French-language Quebecois outpost, a post office, a submarine, an oversized game of dice, multiple museums and research laboratories with varying degrees of tongue-in-cheekiness, and much more.
Visitors can park at the East Beach parking lot at Medicine Lake. The Art Car Taxi Shanty provides transportation from the shore to the middle of the lake, where visitors can meet the artists, explore the shanties and experience this unique interpretation of a true piece of Minnesota winter culture.
Afterwards we'll warm up at a local non-freezing watering hole.
