Guerrilla Truck Show 2012 brings designers to the West Loop
Art and design lovers swarmed Fulton Market Tuesday night for the eighth annual Guerrilla Truck Show. As always, Morlen Sinoway Atelier put on the event, which benefited Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA). U-Hauls and trailers became showrooms for art, furniture, bikes, accessories and other designs by professionals and students alike.
This year's notable exhibitors included Michael Schafer, a retired plastic surgeon who makes sculptures using only found materials like wood, old rakes or panels of glass abandoned in a basement; Levi Borreson, who builds bikes by hand in Bridgeport; and Harrington College of Design professor Peter Klick, whose experimental design class put together a game of “human Tetris” inside its truck.
