Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a business or display and sell your creative work in Fishtown? This summer, you can! Welcome to the Fishtown Art Shanty 2021, a pop up space where artists, craftsmen and makers can be an intimate part of the Fishtown experience for a week from late May through October.
Fishtown Preservation provides the space and eager visitors—and you present your art, share your love of the area, find a new audience for your work, and get to be a part of the Fishtown community.
The Art Shanty is located on the lower level of the Ice House and was previously occupied by Leland gal. It is 432 square feet (18 x 24) and the license fee is $500 per week. The shanty is located with a south facing view of the Leland River and is near the Carlson smokehouses. The space can be occupied by up to three artists or craftspeople at one time for the same one‐week fee, though each prospective occupant must apply.
If you are interested, please fill out the application and submit to [email protected] – with subject line “2021 Art Shanty Application.” FPS will acknowledge the receipt of all applications, but acceptance does not guarantee approval.
