For thousands of hardy Minnesotans, mid-Winter is the best time to celebrate the arts. Join us during a 10 year winter tradition by becoming a volunteer for the Art Shanty Projects, a month-long festival on a frozen lake surface that is transformed into an interactive, artist-driven temporary community.

Volunteers play a key role in keeping the Art Shanty Projects running smoothly, and we could not do it without you! From guiding cars as they enter the parking lot, to welcoming guests, providing artist support, or navigating kick-sled, we rely on the kindness of volunteers to keep our event open and accessible to all.

What can you do to help?

  • Sign up for a volunteer position during the program: February 4-26, 2016, 9:30 am-3:30 pm. Shifts are 2 hours each with plenty of warm-up breaks.
  • Suit up and show up to our artist-driven community and help expand notions of art

Positions include:

Welcome Shanty - Greet visitors, hand out programs

On-Ice Support - Answer general questions, conduct audience surveys

Accessibility Support - Help us make the ice accessible to all visitors

Traffic Control - Direct traffic flow, assist audience members to the ice

All volunteers will receive a goodie bag assembled by our generous sponsors which includes:

  • Fulton Beer
  • Discount Coupons to eat at Washington Square (White Bear Lake) & Tiny Diner (Minneapolis)
  • Drink Tickets to Bryant Lake Bowl
  • Art Shanty Projects Hat
  • Hand Warmers
