ARTIST-COLLECTIVE STUDIO OPEN HOUSE EVENT FEATURING
LOCAL ART, FURNITURE DESIGN, AND FUNCTIONAL
CHICAGO, IL—Local co-operated design collective
DOCK 6 is pleased to announce the 12th edition of its Design & Art Series occurring Saturday, May 18th, 2PM–8PM. This wildly popular design & art showcase first premiered in 2010 (beginning as a semi-annual), and has since invited hundreds of artists, designers, and curators to create fascinating, diverse shows of contemporary art and design pieces installed amongst the tools and machinery of a raw, working studio space. Hosted at DOCK 6’s sprawling Austin/Belmont-Cragin neighborhood headquarters, the event is free and open to the public.
The Design & Art Series has made “Best-Of”
lists in local publications for years and attendance has swelled to over 2,000 on some occasions. 2019 participants include the DOCK 6 collective members Carson Maddox Studios, -ism Furniture, Lagomorph Design, Navillus Woodworks, SAP Design, and zakrose.
Founded in 2009, DOCK 6 Collective has become
one of Chicago’s premier design and custom fabrication studios. Comprised of six distinct artist-driven businesses, DOCK 6 is a collective of independent designers and fabricators who advocate for themselves, but also function as a group. Carson Maddox Studios, -ism Furniture, Lagomorph Design, Navillus Woodworks, SAP Design, and zakrose not only share the two-floor, 50K square-foot warehouse space, but they also share fabrication knowledge, labor, skill-sets, and tools to deliver finely crafted, thoughtfully produced work to architects, interior designers, retailers, contractors, and residential clients. Also known as a hub for the Chicago visual arts community, DOCK 6 fosters a platform for open dialogue between artists and designers through seasonal events that are open
to the public.
