The HOPE Outdoor Gallery (HOG) is a three-story educational art project located at 11th & Baylor Streets in Austin – one of the largest outdoor galleries in the USA. This project was developed to provide muralists, graffiti artists and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive and educational messaging. In addition, the project activates and beautifies a dynamic yet underutilized space with a great view of Austin! The project was officially launched by the HOPE Campaign in March 2011 with the support of Shepard Fairey and Obey Giant Art.
My favorite part of the space is that it is ever changing. Even if you went daily there would always be new pieces to see. I try to photograph and record some of what I see any time that I find myself in Austin. Here are a few pieces that were on the walls of the HOG in June 2014.
