Local artist Browne, aka the guy who plasters the city's wires with colorful Berds, has just opened up a gallery/store at 1505 1/2 Echo Park Avenue. The store will sell artwork by both Browne and other artists, and host gallery openings and parties for dirty hipsters. Also, if you fancy yourself a Berd, you no longer have to risk electrocution; you can buy one at the store for $75. But now that Browne is going retail, does this mean no more Berding around town? "No, I went out last night and did some Berds downtown," he tells us. Whew.
