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

It starts in the morning, when owners of local 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 the neighborhood comes alive with remarkable energy.

For visitors who want a taste of where the locals go, the Downtown Art Walk , every second Thursday from noon to 9 p.m., 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.
