January 2018 I visited the HOPE gallery in Austin Texas. The gallery had recently slated for demolition and I wanted the opportunity to preserve a piece of Austin in digital form. The HOPE Outdoor Gallery has always been an artistic inspiration for me. Austin, graffiti art has been something I watched evolve over the years. I saw artists band together to push a legitimate face for the Austin graffiti scene. I’ve watched artist paint plywood, old doors, metal, cars, buildings… and watched the struggle to legitimize an underground art form. I believe the HOPE Gallery is one, of many forms of art, that embrace this ideal.
As of January 2nd 2019, HOPE Gallery officially closes its doors, to re-open on Baylor St:
I hope you enjoy the virtual tour! I would like to thank you all for the ongoing support of 360Production.Services
