Calling all art lovers sans plans for the evening!
Tonight, and the second Thursday of every month, is the free, self-guided, public art phenomenon known as The Downtown Art Walk. The DAW brings art lovers and community folk together to celebrate the arts in Los Angeles’ ever evolving downtown. Many of the DAW activities take place in and around the galleries predominantly on Spring and Main streets between 2nd and 9th streets. However, there is a plethora of other activities should you choose to venture outward. For the true art aficionados, early arrival to the DAW offers a more relaxed pace throughout the different galleries and art exhibits as many eventual attendees are still leaving work at that time.
When in Rome, or Downtown LA, make like the locals and veer off the art path and visit the surrounding shops, restaurants, and bars for the full downtownee experience. If you’re feeling frisky and want a more upbeat scene, head over to the Art Walk Lounge for the SoBe “Try Everything Experience,” featuring DIY t-shirt screen-printing, full-sized free samples of SoBe’s 31 flavors, Spin Art by DJ Scratch Academy, Live art by CHASE, free bike valet service and free art walk maps! Free, free and more free.
The lounge features a different theme each week and is located at located at 529 S. Spring St. and is open from 6-10PM. The art walk galleries are typically open from 12-9PM during the event, however click here for more information on hours of operation and special exhibits.
