Merchandise Mart’s ‘One of a Kind Show’ showcases unique, original artwork

CHICAGO -- Whether you're into pop culture, Chicago images, illuminated sculptures or just looking for that perfect Christmas gift, the Merchandise Mart's One of a Kind Show features artists from all over the world.

New Orleans native Amanda Bennett attended this year's show. She uses midcentury advertising and female empowerment with a little bit of social commentary, as her inspiration.

Ray Zovar was on hand displaying his 3-D illuminating free standing sculptures.

Zovar, a One of a Kind Show veteran, said he loves displaying his art in the Windy City.

With just a few weeks left for holiday shopping, the show celebrated its 17th year at the Merchandise Mart with thousands of people browsing and buying these unique and original designs.
