The Underground Art Market started with 20 friends creating a vendor event for the wider Burning Man Community in private artists' space starting in 2010. The first UAM was held at TransAmoeba Studios in the South Loop, eventually, we grew out of that space and began organizing in another related private artist studio in the West Loop called C-Haus.
UAM 2017, we had an unexpectedly large turnout. Our space could barely accommodate the crowd. Aggghh, the growing pains!! We needed more space, and accessibility for all is important to us.
What makes UAM special is the uniqueness of the spaces we inhabit that provide a multi-sensory experience. Salvage One is a 60,000 square ft. antique/ architectural salvage showroom/ premier Chicago event space.
