It’s finally starting to feel like summer in Chicago, and along with it comes the 7th Annual Guerrilla Truck Show! Tomorrow, get creative with your fellow designers as trucks descend into the West Loop in true guerrilla fashion.

This year promises to be one of the largest shows yet, complete with inspired truck design, local artists, local restaurants and food trucks.  Truck Show veterans Craighton Berman, Angela Finney-Hoffman of Post 27, Object Society and Object Design League will be returning for their 7th year running along with our very own Harrington College of Design truck designed by an Experimental Design class.

See highlights from last year!

Don’t miss it!!
