ART SHANTY 2014 [WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN]
In 2014 NewStudio was selected to participate in the Art Shanty Projects, a non-profit artist driven semi annual public art installation on ice. After having had an office field trip to the Frogtown Curling Club and with the 2014 Winter Olympics overlapping with the event, our team determined that Curling would offer the perfect outdoor program for the project. With little to no curling skills, our team would engage the public with curling tutorials on a handmade ice sheet made with colored cray paper. The shanty structure itself was programmed as a warming house filled with a gallery wall of historical curling images as well as instructional diagrams and updated Olympic curling scorecard.
