Weekends on the Lake: Minnesota's Art Shanty Projects

A 12-foot polar bear slowly lumbers across the frozen lake. Two heavily bundled children shout gleefully as they bounce each other up and down on a Ouijatotter. College students dance their cares (and thick winter shells) away in a small hut pounding with music. All this and more is par for the course at Minnesota’s Art Shanty Projects, an annual experiment in public art and community.
