Built Festival, Chi Town

A major new art Initiative; BUILT;festival, is a city being created out of shipping containers this summer in Chicago’s Wicker Park Neighborhood. The shipping containers will be given over to Chicago’s contemporary artists and curators to transform into alternative or ‘ guerrilla’ venues.


BUILT is designed as a dynamic space for creative thinking and action, bringing together artists and participants in a cultural activation open to the public.


Friday August 12th, 5:00pm-10:30pm
Saturday August 13th, 11:00am-10:30pm

1767 n Milwaukee avenue, Chicago IL 60647

Over a hundred independent artists, projects, exhibitions, and performances, which expand on the festival’s themes of urban culture, will open inside and out of our shipping container venues.

12 shipping container galleries

BUILT;festival is a grassroots operation located in Chicago Illinois. We hope you can attend the festival and see our efforts to build this second city.
