Tonight we celebrated an A.Okay tradition, the 2nd Annual Chicago Train Art Show. Thanks to everyone who came out and to all who participated! This year our artists really thought outside the box…
Lana Crooks sends word of the Friday’s “A.Okay Loves CTA”
It’s back! “A.Okay Loves CTA” returns for its 2nd annual locomotive art happening. Join a fresh plethora of artists in celebrating our favorite moving canvas! This year’s show takes a new spin on the urban custom toy trend as exhibiting artists expand beyond one specific train model. Dozens of your favorite urban, graphic and illustrative artists from Chicago and beyond raid hobby shops, toy stores and junkyards to bring us trains of all shapes and sizes they have painted, sculpted or defiled.
This February, ground-breakers in the Midwest urban movement will take this familiar icon of our city off the track with an impressive art event.
Some of the Artists involved:
Max Bare, Ian Bennett, Jason Brammer, Chips, Matt Cipov, Lana Crooks, Daze, James “Jim Bot” Demski, Dez, Fathom, Flip, Jose Garibaldi, Joey Potts, Lisa Kuppinger, Steph Laberis, LIKE, Miss Monster Mel, Vince Newkirk, Shannah O’Meara, Osito, Charlie Owens, Peabe, Lacey Pipher, Project Detonate, Rabies, David Rettker, Revise CMW, Matthew Ryan Sharp, Shermz, David Soukup, Soule, Richard Sparks, Shawn Roberts, Toby Stranger, Erik Stenberg, David “Netherland” van Alphen, Brian Walline, zChild & More…
