Downtown Art Walk is a free, self-guided
tour of the many art exhibition venues in
Downtown Los Angeles — commercial art
galleries, museums, and non-profit arts
venues. Public information and a printable pdf
map of the Downtown Art Walk are available at
The Downtown Art Walk began in September 2004
and has grown enormously since, with many
thousands of people attending every month.
Participants in the Downtown Art Walk are the
more than 40 galleries and museums located
throughout the central downtown area, within
the walk-able districts between Grand
Avenue/Disney Hall/ MOCA, Little Tokyo, the
Financial District, and centered around
Gallery Row on Main and Spring Streets in the
Historic Core. Most venues are open at least
12-9 pm, but some may open later than 12 pm or
close earlier than 9 pm; specific exceptions
are listed next to each venue on the map.
The Downtown Art Walk has received numerous
citations and awards from the Downtown News,
The City of Los Angeles, the American Planning
Association, and has been covered widely in
the media, including PBS, KABC, KNBC, The Los
Angeles Times, the LA Weekly, and others.
Bark Avenue is a proud sponsor of the
Downtown Art Walk.
We're located at 545 S. Main Street,
