When we read the official description of Built Festival, "a city being created out of shipping containers this summer in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood," we imagined something like Container City in London. It doesn't look like Build Festival will be constructing anything quite so elaborate out of shipping containers, but it does sound like a neat event. Twelve shipping container galleries will be set up at 1767 N. Milwaukee (the address of the Aldi at Milwaukee and Leavitt) and handed over to contemporary artists. Sort of similar to the Guerrilla Truck show, which we covered in June. The event will kick off on Friday evening.
