Art Shanty Projects – Weekends from January 20 – February 11

Welcoming and lively in the spring and summer, our city’s lakes become a little desolate once temps plummet below zero, and waves turn to ice. Every year since 2007, Art Shanty Projects has transformed the surface of a frozen lake into a dynamic community gathering space. This year, artists of all stripes will set up shanties across Lake Harriet (Bde Unma), and treat the city to a variety of stories, songs, games and more.

Minnesota winters can definitely be bitterly cold, but here at Cameron’s, we revel in the opportunity to slow down, and take time for what matters most. If the slush and gloom get you down, we’d encourage you to crack open one of the books on your nightstand that’s been waiting to be read, or to spend a day baking cookies and doing a puzzle with the kids. However you decide to spend your winter, we hope each morning starts out warm and bright with a delicious cup of Cameron’s.
