A collaboration between Fairfax’s Family bookstore and Teenage Teardrops’ Cali Dewitt, the Hope Gallery sits on Echo Park Avenue’s well-trafficked bohemian block of shops by the historic Chicken Corner. Focusing on local and upcoming artists with a penchant for comic style illustration and psychedelic installations, the Hope Gallery has already established itself as a premiere locale for Echo Park’s booming hipster population.
