Every first Thursday of each month Downtown Los Angeles hosts a night dedicated to artists. It is called the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk. Galleries open up and artists have a location to display their creations. The streets pack out with admiring viewers, interesting people, artists and individuals who appreciate excellent gourmet food trucks.
I decided to visit last Thursday evening – I only live 10 minutes away so it isn’t that much of a trek. I went to one of my favorite galleries – the Hive Gallery and snuck a peek at who was showing that evening. I am a huge fan of art that goes outside the box, I find it a bit more interesting and that’s usually what you find at Hive.
Here are some of the artists that were on display at Hive Gallery:
Alan Deforest, you have a new fan!

Another major aspect of Downtown LA Art Walk is the architecture. The old buildings mixed with aspects of modern architecture are pulled off quite nicely.
A night at Art Walk for me wouldn’t be complete without stopping by the Silo Bar or Seven Grand in Downtown LA. I recommend stopping by and paying a visit to both of them. The Silo Bar has a vodka tasting room along with delicious vodka drink creations.
Los Angeles has a huge art scene and a plethora of amazing undiscovered artists. If you live in Los Angeles and haven’t been to Art Walk, I suggest you take a trip. If you plan to visit Los Angeles, I suggest fitting it in your itinerary.
Every time I walk away from Art Walk, I am re-inspired to design and create beautiful projects. I’m lucky to live so close to something this fun and creative.

For a final shot – goodnight Downtown Los Angeles and once again thank you for a wonderfully creative evening…
