It’s January and the hype of the new year is fading.
Minnesota has a vibrant art scene with world class museums, theater and live music in every direction and artist galleries and studios in almost every corner. In addition to this, residents have learned to embrace the winter and find creative ways to enjoy the season.
Using white-painted steel and colorful string for its latest art shanty entry called “String Box Shanty,” NewStudio Architecture is encouraging hands-on interaction with its design during the Art Shanty Projects On-Ice Program, weekends February 4 to 26 on White Bear Lake, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Visitors to the Art Shanty Projects interact with the String Box Shanty, sponsored by White Bear Lake-based NewStudio Architecture on Sunday, Feb. 5.
The 2014 Art Shanty Projects on White Bear Lake were an artist driven temporary community that explored the ways in which a relatively unregulated public space (i.e. a frozen lake) could be used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be.
