One Room School House

Visual Artists
Anthony Warnick, Katinka Galanos, Patricia Healy, Alyson Coward, Derek Ernster

Building on the traditions of the rural one-room schoolhouses during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, we re-claim this mode of all-inclusive, non-hierarchical learning. Within the walls of our basic one-room schoolhouse, students and the public-at-large can learn basic and advanced skills, as well as have a voice in choosing the school’s Guest lecturers and participating in the workshops that the Guests then lead.


Art Shanty Projects is a four-week exhibition that 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. It is an artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which the relatively unregulated public space of the frozen lake can be used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be.

Open January 14 – February 5, 2012.
10am – 5pm weekends (plus MLK Day, Jan 16th)
On Medicine Lake, Plymouth, Minnesota.
