Art Shanties

On Saturday, Brit and I went to see the Art Shanty Projects on Medicine Lake in Plymouth, MN.

The Art Shanty Project is “[a] six-week exhibition of performance, architecture, science, art, video, literature, survivalism and karaoke, ASP is part sculpture park, part artist residency and part social experiment, inspired by traditional ice fishing houses that dot the state’s lakes in winter.”

There are some amazingly creative shanties, my favorites being the USS Mondale,  appearing to be a submarine breaking through the ice.

and The Third Level, a multi leveled shanty that gives you an overhead view of the surrounding lake.
