The Guerilla Truck Show will feature artist showrooms set up in U-Haul trucks

Who says you have to have a big, fancy-schmancy art gallery representing you to get your artwork in front of an audience? In the ultimate egalitarian move since YouTube, the Guerilla Truck Show will feature works by local independent artists and designers, shown out of rented U-Haul trucks parked along Fulton Market in front of Morlen Sinoway Atelier on Tuesday, June 16 from 6-9PM.

The fifth annual free-form event is organized by Sinoway, along with other Fulton Market District businesses including Linda Warren Gallery, Kasia Kay Art Projects, Pivot, EC Gallery, Brickermade and Jupiter Outpost. It's not unusual to see trucks lining the streets in this neighborhood, which also serves as Chicago's meat-packing center -- only during this design-savvy soiree, some of those vehicles will be filled with art.

More than 20 Chicago artists will take part in the DIY show, including Dale Meiners of Trimline Custom Designs, Cursive Design, Danielle Klinenberg with 2 Point Perspective and Cleveland Dean of SENstudio with Norman Teague. Morlen Sinoway Atelier will also host new items by Steven Haulenbeek, Jonathan Nesci and Fritz Hansen in a more traditional, indoor set-up taking place during the event. The party will also feature music spun by DJ Friar Tuck and DJ Leslie Spears for your listening enjoyment, and refreshments will be served. 

The Guerilla Truck Show is free and open to the public; you don't even have to RSVP. Just show up at 1052 W. Fulton Market, and get ready to be inspired. Call 312-432-0100 for more details.
