Time Out Market Chicago pays tribute to the late fashion designer, artist and DJ Virgil Abloh, unveiling a mural dedicated to the Rockford, Illinois native, presented in partnership with B_Line Projects. Before he became an artistic director at Louis Vuitton and began collaborating with Kanye West, Abloh honed his craft in Chicago, attending the Illinois Institute of Technology and co-founding Bucktown retail store RSVP Gallery.
Celebrating the designer's influence in the art, music and fashion communities, Time Out Market Chicago will unveil a mural dedicated to Abloh in its west stairwell, created by local artist Rahmaan Statik. The unveiling will be followed by a panel discussion with the mural's artist and local tastemakers. Guests can stick around into the evening for a DJ set from Mike Slugs
Admission to this event is free and donations to the Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund will be accepted onsite or by clicking the ticket link.
