William was a friendly and excellent host. This is a great spot for those with a more bohemian and adventurous streak.

William is the best host! He was always responsive and helpful before I checked in and replied swiftly to all my questions. He made sure my room was cat-free and gave me clean bedding and even bought brand new pillows for me as I'm allergic to cats. The place itself is great – amazing location right in the heart of Wicker Park, two minutes from Damen station (right on the line to O'Hare airport and downtown) and close to all the cafés, bars, convenience stores and nice vintage shops. The room and house are huge too. I would come back in a heartbeat!

It was a great stay! the place is definitely very original and unique. William is very nice and friendly. just a heads up... the room where we stayed is right next to the train tracks so it was very noisy.

William User Profile

Hello! My name is William.

I am a self-employed artist living & directing a gallery in Wicker Park. Last year I completed a Masters degree in Fine Arts at the School Of The Art Institute of Chicago where I studied Video, Performance, Photography and Film.

Important things to me are dream recording, writing, correspondence art, experimental film, movement practices, reading & traveling. I try to travel as often as possible, even if it's just a driving trip of two hours to camp somewhere for a night or two.

I want to provide an environment for artists & other creative, passionate individuals to have a voice & present their work. Sharing stories, ideas, experiences & realities are what we're in it for. We at the gallery are holding the torch in the neighborhood to provide a space for what might be unsayable elsewhere. We are daily developing our intentional space here to create an inspiring atmosphere for all who step foot inside, whether it's for a project proposal or a short visit. It's an older building, lovingly-worn, rooms with character surrounding an open gallery space.

As an airbnb guest, you can expect that we'll be curious about you. Our roommates & us all get along really well: It is an easy going dynamic here at the house. We are an eclectic variety!

Looking forward to meeting you)
