Art Walk Wrap: April 2010
Industrial and environmental artist Doron Gazit placed some of his works that "reflect the flow" of weather currents in and around the LAPD plaza space.
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — The April edition of the Downtown Art Walk brought a few new changes in Gallery Row's evolution. A growing balance among the blocks was hastened by new galleries and strategic food truck placement. That's been a goal of the event, but the change is coming faster than expected according to Art Walk head Jay Lopez.
6th and Spring has been one corner to particularly benefit, with more life each month.
Another change next month will be a relocation of the Art Walk Lounge from The Exchange to the lobby of the Los Angeles Theater Center, according to Lopez.
At the north end of Gallery Row, the still-dead lawn at the new LAPD headquarters was the site for Art-Mart. Vendors selling paintings and the oddly added "your name on a grain of rice" table sat alongside great environmental sculptures that framed a stage that hosted live music.
