Gallery 1988: LA cover
Description Gallery 1988 has quickly become one of the world’s most talked about art galleries. Opened in 2004 on the famous corner of Melrose and La Brea, by California natives Katie Cromwell and Jensen Karp, the gallery has become the nation's number one destination for pop-culture themed artwork and the premiere venue to witness the rise of emerging artists before they break.

Openings at the gallery have seen upwards of 2,500 people attending in one night, including celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, Good Charlotte, Seth Rogen, DJ AM, Paul Wall, Seth Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Jonah Hill, Michael Rappaport, Linkin Park, Swizz Beats and Joss Whedon admiring the walls. An annual show at G1988, “Crazy 4 Cult” receives worldwide press (faced by the show’s hosts filmmakers Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier) and over 1,000,000 website hits on the day of the opening reception. Titan Publishing recently published the gallery's first book chronicling pieces from the first 4 installments of the show.

In addition, Gallery1988 has collaborated with Stan Lee and Beastie Boys to create the annual tribute show, "Under the Influence," which pays homage to these inspirational icons and their influence on our generation. And in 2011, Karp and Cromwell expanded G1988 with a second location, on the border of Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

The galleries have been featured in dozens of magazines including US Weekly, Jutxapoz, JANE, COMPLEX, The Los Angeles Times, FHM, The Washington Post, and The National Post. They've also received press from the CNN, G4 network, KTLA, KTTV, CNN.com, MSNBC.com, KROQ, Power 106 and publications in the United Kingdom, Japan, Sweden, Germany and Italy.

G1988 has also created unprecedented partnerships with corporations like The Walt Disney Company, Capcom, Topps, EA and Mattel to produce art shows inspired by their products and history. In 2009, Gallery1988:LA worked hand in hand with Tyson/Givens Design & ABC television show "LOST," to create a promo
