'Entourage' star Adrian Grenier plans pop-up store in downtown L.A.

Hollywood activists Adrian Grenier and Peter Glatzer said Monday that they would open a pop-up art gallery and store for two weeks in a historic downtown Los Angeles building.

Grenier, who portrays movie star Vincent Chase in the HBO television series “Entourage,” and Glatzer, a producer, said their SHFT Gallery would open May 13 during the evening Art Walk downtown and operate daily through May 26 in the Continental Building at 4th and Spring streets.

The gallery will include more than 50 pieces by Los Angeles-based artists including Tierney Gearon, Jay Mark Johnson, Lauren Bon, Rebeca Mendez, Ramon Coronado and Jay Mark Johnson. Eco-friendly Continental products from SHFT will also be on sale.

Grenier and Glatzer founded SHFT after creating the TV show “Alter Eco” for the Discovery channel.

The 13-story Continental Building, completed in  1904, was the city’s first high-rise office tower. It is now an apartment building, but the ground floor retail space does not have a permanent tenant.
