Tiny Shanty (Art Shanty Projects 2010)
A three-story mansion shrunk down to ¼ scale, decorated with tiny furniture and décor. Visitors were invited to enjoy tiny tea-time, tiny poetry readings, tiny films and more. The final weekend of the Shanty Project, tiny shanty hosted a “regional burn” as part of the Balsa Man Arts community. Balsa Man is a tiny version of the Burning Man Festival.
