The Art Post
Billed as the world's only Post Office on ice, the Art Post Shanty is the official mail service for the Art Shanty Project. Visitors can make a postcard to send from the ice or send mail to be delivered to another shanty.

Founders Peter Haakon Thompson and David Pitman say the aim of the project is for artists to take their work outside the gallery and into the community. 

This year, more than 20 artists built themed shanties on the Plymouth lake. Highlights    include performances at the Black Box Theater Shanty and singing at the Karaoke Shanty.
