Art Walk: What Is It? Where?
The Downtown Art Walk is a free self-guided walking tour located between 4th and 7th and Spring and Main along with galleries, restaurants and bars in several surrounding blocks of Downtown Los Angeles.
Founded in 2004 with a handful of galleries located in Gallery Row as a platform to encourage Los Angelenos from all over the City to visit Downtown LA by inviting galleries to stay open late once a month. Since then the Downtown LA Art Walk has become the most prominent event in the local community and widely known through the Greater Los Angeles area.
What began organically grew into what we recognize today as the Downtown Art Walk with over 50 galleries, 25,000 monthly guests, dozens of local businesses and a million dollars of entertainment for free to the visiting public.
Where is it?
The Downtown Art Walk is located mainly in the Historic Core between 4th and 7th and Spring and Main Streets. However the galleries and restaurants spread beyond to the Fashion District, South Park and the Financial District. Please check the website for the most recent map that includes the surrounding districts.

The Downtown Art Walk is every 2nd Thursday of the month. Rain or shine.
