So much fun.. .very cool site where you can tag or make a real spray paint picture, Bring your own cans or do what we did .. make a donation. Not sure if there are always people there with cans. We might have gotten lucky.

Cool gallery in an not so ordinary way. You can even spray an artwork yourself. Outdoors and for free.

Drive by only if you have nothing better to do ... Not safe, trashy, un-interesting, drive along train cars instead. With so may cool murals in the city, this place is horrible.

Parking is a pain on the weekend but still a fun photo spot. There are a few local artists hanging out. Popular for photo shoots. You can climb along the right side up the hill to the upper murals.

HOPE was "developed to provide muralists, street artists, arts education classes and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive & educational messaging." I believe in this idea, but the reality is that those amazing large scale murals that are actually awe-inspiring get covered up so quickly with meaningless stuff to post on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, etc (initials -or- I ❤️ xxxx -or- xxxx was here...you get the idea) ...

I believe muralists have an unofficial "code of conduct" where you don't actually cover up or paint over someone else's work unless you can actually do something better. Because this has become such a popular tourist destination, I think the days of serious muralists/graffiti artists putting their work up at HOPE gallery is long gone, because why spend all that time and effort to put up a piece that someone will just disrespectfully tag over the next day?

I went to the gallery twice - a few days apart from each other, and saw an artist putting his work up. 2 days later, it had already distastefully been tagged over with the original artists' name covered up. So listen...if you somehow want your work to get "discovered" here, the chances are slim. On the flip side, it is ever-changing, so everytime you go, it could be a different experience.
