Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk
This free, self-guided community event takes place on the second Thursday of every month.It takes place around the Historic Core and Old Bank Districts in Downtown Los Angeles. The walk includes more than 40 galleries and showcases the best artists, photography, restaurants, bars and shops, and businesses in the area.
According to the official website, "Many of The Downtown Art Walk activities take shape in and around the galleries predominantly on Spring and Main streets between 2nd and 9th streets. However, there is a plethora of art related events and openings, activities, and special programming that take place all over downtown."
