If you’ve been to Chicago during NeoCon in the past nine years, you may have seen a line of nearly 60 parked trucks lining Fulton Market and Aberdeen streets featuring the latest ideas in furniture design and art.
This year, the Guerrilla Truck show is back again on June 11, as Chicago’s grassroots event for designers and artisans to exhibit their work for one night only.
The focus of the show is to help emerging designers and furniture makers showcase their products at a low cost (a truck rental) while over 20,000 people are in town for NeoCon, one of the largest contract trade shows in the country.
This year’s exhibitors include: Harrington College of Design student’s exhibition, UIC Industrial Design students, SAIC Design Object students, SAIC Furniture design/build students, Harold Washington College student work showcase, ROOH Design, Weefu, Whitetree Studio, Jacob Kaufman, Stephen Winer, RX Made, Streng Design, Carighton Berman Studio, Thomas Oliphant, Unbranded Designs, Mooya, Jeff Faye with Ugly Step Sister Art Gallery, Woodsport, husARchitecture Inc., Beau Hale Design 7 Kevin Dean Taylor, Packer Schopf Gallery with Ellen Greene, Joe Hindley, SOLO Home Design, Joe Munson, Chris Fein & Bob Greenspan, Katie Chappuis, Arts Incubators Design Apprenticeship Program, MunieDesigns with Gerry Christensen, PagodaRed, Iconmodern, Kaisa Dille Designs by 4arm studios, AHdidit, Modern Industry, Linc Thelen, Garth Borovicka, Peter Hurley Art, Legacy Frameworks, Wreck Creation, Mission Control Lab, M2M Creative Pieces, SiteSpec, MTS Design Lab, Michael W.
