Around the June Art Walk

Downtown workers race for a bus past MATTEO's Video Sculptures. When Downtown begins to wind down, Art Walk is just warming up.

A mellow crowd matched the mellow weather for the June Downtown Art Walk, but the streets of Gallery Row were still busy with art lovers and food trucks on Thursday night.

Competition from the Lakers' NBA Finals game and a crackdown on the Art Walk party scene gave this walk a more subdued feel, but it may also have brought out a new type of Art Walker. Several strollers were spotted among the gallery mix.

Thursday proved to be a great night if you like food from a truck. Both the heavily-hyped Kogi BBQ truck and the newer Don Chow truck were on the streets. Visitors in search of dessert had the Coolhaus ice cream sandwich truck. Even the mild June weather could not keep passersby from indulging in a few frozen treats.
