Californian Art Dealer Christopher Heijnen recently opened the Los Angeles branch of the New York based Franklin Parrasch Gallery. After a year of hunting for the perfect location, Heijnen landed on an old dinette in Boyle Heights. A great, dynamic space with room enough for a sculpture garden. Definitely worth a visit!
