The folks at Peace Lutheran Church of Lauderdale took a train to White Bear Lake in February to participate in the 2016 Art Shanty Project.
Congregants spent January building their Peace Train Shanty in the church sanctuary and moved the structure to White Bear Lake for the project’s opening day Feb. 6. The Art Shanty Project is a biannual month-long “artistdriven temporary community in the tradition of ice-fishing communities but with arts-based programming,” according to the project’s website. It’s a sculpture park, art gallery and community on ice. Each shanty has a theme and involves a lot of audience participation.
This is the second year Peace Lutheran has participated. Congregants built Noah’s Art Shanty for the 2014 Art Shanty Project.
The event continues through the last weekend in February.
