Celebrate youth creativity with an evening of runway shows and design installations presented by the winners of the MCA × Virgil Abloh Design Challenge.
Over 300 Chicagoland youth turned something boring or broken into something extraordinary and submitted ideas ranging from a global radio to eco-friendly fashions. Watch short videos produced by Instagram highlighting each of the 5 winners and view their winning designs in person.
The Youth Design Showcase also features creations from design workshops inspired by Virgil Abloh: “Figures of Speech.” Working with city-wide institutional partners, the MCA welcomed over 1,100 youth from 58 city-wide summer programs to attend free artist-led workshops and explore their creative passions. Youth and supporters of all ages are invited to enjoy the presentations, music, and free food.
WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT THE WINNERS OF THE DESIGN CHALLENGE
**This event is free.**
