Chicago’s enthusiasm for art won’t be contained this weekend, as the city kicks off the Built Festival in the Wicker Park neighborhood. The new art initiative involves the creation of a city made out of shipping containers. Local contemporary artists and curators will transform the containers into venues to showcase their wares. The event, which kicks off Friday, will feature more than 100 artists, projects, exhibitions, and performances in and around the site’s 12 containers.
Friday August 12th, 5:00pm-10:30pm
Saturday August 13th, 11:00am-10:30pm
