MAYBE SUNDAY 1.0 06 /14 — 06 / 16
Maybe Sunday Est. 2014 in Chicago's Pilsen Art District by artists, Jason Guo and McKenzie Thompson.
Maybe Sunday began as a full-print clothing line and concept store in the Heart of Chicago. This space became a nexus for enterprising
creatives from across the city.
A hybrid space, Maybe Sunday represented fashion designers and artists; hosted gallery shows, collection releases, musical performances, film shoots and screenings, readings, and workshops; offered an array of services, including couture and mass apparel production; laser cutting; art and object design and fabrication; neon bending; vinyl cutting and installation; heat press; art and creative direction; graphic and web design; branding; event hosting; art installation, and audio recording and production.
JASON & MCKENZIE first collaborated in 2013 on a sculptural photograph called Really, Really, Really Real. The piece projects a playful and illusory snapshot of commercialized culture. It also intends to raise questions about the 21st Century approach to natural needs.
MAYBE SUNDAY LAUNCHED in 2014 with a successful Kickstarter.
MAYBE SUNDAY 1.0 1711 S HALSTED ST | CHICAGO Opened October 3, 2014
Maybe Sunday 1.0 was full of surprises. Tucked away in an unassuming spot at the corner of 18th and Halsted, this tiny shop was nothing much from the exterior, but step inside and be transformed! Designed with the seemingly endless Chicago winters in mind, this hybrid space had the aesthetic of a kind of spaceship garden, with clean, white walls, astroturfed floors, punchy art objects and house-designed clothing throughout the shop.
What began with our own five poppy t-shirt designs soon expanded into a multi-disciplinary hub for rising designers, fine artists, photographers, writers, stylists, models, musicians, and art lovers.
We hosted a multitude of gatherings and events, screenings and installations, collection launches, and even helped our neighbor proposed to his wife in a beautiful and creative way (all his idea! we were honored to be a part <3 p.s. she said yes :))
This place was truly alive! And the founders were overjoyed to connected with an ambitious creative community and take on the world together.
About a year after opening the store, Jason travelled to Canada to visit his parents for the weekend and got stuck in the ole Kanuka upon reentry to the US. Turns out being a business owner with a valid visa was problematic for a certain border patrol officer, so Jason stayed in Canada for 18 months while McKenzie contiued their work in Chicago.
MAYBE SUNDAY 2.0 1320 W 18TH ST | CHICAGO Opened June 10, 2016
In June 2016, McKenzie, with the help of Jaja Bish, Tony Corrallez, and Blake Pon, relocated Maybe Sunday into a larger space on 18th near the bustling heart of Pilsen.
This time, the shop had a stage, full range set up for musical performance, and a custom apparel production workshop and audio recording studio.
Maybe Sunday grew and thrived and had the pleasure of helping catalyze the work of a number of creative projects and events. For artists down to get down to business, this was a poppin spot.
We threw our final show in this space in December 2017 for special guests Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago (MCA) ArtSmart.
Entitled The Future Is Now, the show highlighted works by a selection of Chicago's bourgeoning creatives, including Jaja Bish, Giselle Gatsby, Teddy Jackson, Emma McKee, Brandon Breaux, Allen Vandever, Geoffrey Alan Rhodes, Yuge Zhou, Viraj Mithani, Vincent Hung, Felton Kaizer, Jane Georges, Jason Guo, and McKenzie Thompson. Collectively as creators and through our works, we expressed an emblematic, and historically and culturally relevant movement that is currently taking place in Chicago, and we were ready to announce, the future is now.
MAYBE SUNDAY 3.0 CYBERSPACE Current Version

Still in beta, the site name is a secret. However, if you order from us and send us an email, we will tell you it's us : ) - - - ( always loved a good mystery )
