You’ll have to wait until February for the Art Shanty Projects to return to White Bear Lake for weekends filled with wacky parties, creative collaborations, and whimsical artworks. This Saturday, however, you can get a sneak peek at what’s in store. Photography and other ephemera celebrating and reflecting on the shanties, which kicked off in 2005, will be on display. Guests will also be able to investigate mini-installations showcasing this year’s festival, which include the return of the Pedal Bear Bike and the Shanty of Misfit Toys. If you’re feeling musical, join Norae Shanty’s Mike Hoyt for some karaoke. Appetizers, drinks, and items for sale will round out this evening, which will serve as a benefit party as well.
