At the corner of 3rd and Spring, there is a parking structure for $10 and is in the heart of all the food trucks.

Some say that the Art Walk reminds of a combination of: 1)New York rush hour traffic and the Strip at night in Las Vegas.

On Spring street, traffic is like a parking lot.

There are police on every intersection to help with the pedestrian crossing because its so crowded.

Both ends of the sidewalk on Spring street is packed as if your at a club.

Music, shows and lights are all over the place.

The area is alive from 5pm to 12am!

Go early at 6pm to fight the traffic and get a good parking spot.

Try all of the food trucks first. Try the most popular ones because those lines get really long, such as the Lobster truck and the Grilled Cheese truck.

Bring lots of cash to buy pieces of Art, gifts, and other items at the flea market.

There are portable restrooms by the food trucks.

The Art Walk is definitively the new tourist attraction in southern California. Its a must see!

A new culture and identity has been created at the Old Bank District.

On the second Thursday of every month, something strange happens in Downtown LA.

It starts in the morning, when owners of LA art galleries begin to hustle around making last-minute preparations — adjusting lighting, getting a lineup of drinks ready, choosing music.

Come nightfall, the historic core of Downtown LA comes alive with remarkable energy.

For visitors who want a taste of where the locals go, the Downtown Art Walk, which takes place every second Thursday from Noon–9 p.m.

The Art Walk in Downtown is a perfect example of Los Angeles at its best.

The sheer electricity of the scene explodes from bass-pumping galleries, the eclectic crowd and the music groups that set up outside various galleries in Downtown LA.

One thing is for certain: art lovers think it’s one of the best shows in town.

When the first Downtown Art Walk started on Sept. 9, 2004, people were skeptical that a legitimate art community could rise out of its once-abandoned streets. Families are now coming back to Downtown.

Downtown has transformed into something hip and fresh.

Now it’s hard to believe the district could have been anything other than one of LA’s most vibrant areas for art and shopping.

Word has gotten out and the neighborhood has developed with restaurants and stores.

Like Los Angeles, the art represents a range of tastes, but much of it takes on the energy of the city and the emotions of life Downtown.

Urban counterculture expresses itself through graffiti-esque styles while artists tap into emotions ranging from inspiring to sexual to playful.

The crowd obviously responds to the spectrum galleries offer, but it’s the other aspects of the art walk that seem to give life to the event.

The art walk acts as a catalyst, and out of it comes art that doesn’t hang on walls.

Fashion shows, spoken word, live street music and random outbreaks of freestyle lyricism are byproducts of the galleries, giving testimony to the organic quality of the community here.

The variety is something that appeals to different groups, from hipsters to sophisticates to traveling businessmen.

Much akin to LA’s personality, it all seems to come together, and the variety only makes the scene stronger and more hip.

  2. This is definately one of the places we visit each time we are in LA. We have always enjoyed our time there. My wife loves the art work and I love the food. As long as I let her look at the art displays I get to enjoy the food.
