Art Walk Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk?
The Downtown Los Angeles 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. Generally the hours are 6:00pm to 10:00pm but some galleries open at noon.
The Downtown LA Art Walk was 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.
