July's Downtown Art Walk has galleries stepping up their game, making a summer night out something to bask in. For more information on Thursday night, you can always go to the Downtown Art Walk Lounge, but here's a look at what is in the galleries to plan your night around.

GROW WITH ME: Morono Kiang Gallery presents GROW, an exhibition with eighteen artists of multiple disciplines working in varied professions, including public artists, arts educators, art activists, writers, designers, environmentalists, muralists and fashion designers. The exhibition consists of painting, sculpture, performance, print, video, photography, and installation work. The release goes on: “GROW takes the dissidence of the artworks in MOVE as a launching off point to explore the power of art as a catalyst.” Curated by Shervin Shahbazi. Morono Kiang Gallery / 218 W. 3rd (in the Bradbury Building, between Spring and Broadway

IN BRIEF: Bert Green Fine Art brings David Hollen's New Sculpture and Jen Heaslip's "Agua" New Paintings. Hollen works in steel, wood, rope and other durable materials to form sculptures “working out ideas of energy interactions expressed in the tension between order (grid) and its decay.” Heaslip offers brevity to her work. “Naked guys standing there doing nothing.” Noon to 6pm. BGFA / 102 W. 5th

COLOR MY WORLD: EVFA presents "(Color) Between The Lines: A solo exhibition by Serge Armando" from the shared BGFA hours of noon to 6pm. Serge Armando "was steeped in a backdrop of the blue skies of la Côte d’Azur. From proximity, his way was ushered into first hand experience with Flux and Les Nouveaux Realists." EVFA / 102 W. 5th

NO NAMES PLEASE: CB1 Gallery proudly names four emerging artists -- Edith Beaucage, Alexander Kroll, Matt Lifson and Lily Simonson -- for its exhibition “The art that dare not speak its name.” You'll find character and abstraction from Edith Beaucage, modest abstract from Alexander Kroll, cinematic sensuality from Matt Lifson and transcendent states via invertebrates from Lily Simonson’s paintings. A reception for the artists will be held at the gallery on Saturday, July 10, from 5 to 8pm. An artist talk will take place July 14 at 7pm. CB1 Gallery / 207 W. 5th

MOORE FUN: It’s a simple idea: celebrate one year as part of Downtown’s Art Scene, via South Park, with another night of "music, art and curiosity." Terrell Moore Gallery / 1221 S. Hope / 7pm to Midnight

CITY HALL INSIDER: News cameraman Stephen Coleman just closed his still photography exhibit at Bolt Barbers. His landscapes of Downtown can still be seen in the bridge that connects the two City Halls. Hence the name LA City Hall Bridge Gallery. Open until 6pm. His work is also in the greeting area for the office of the Mayor.

FROM HOME TO GALLERIES Indian Mithila art from the last 20 years will be featured at Norbertellen Gallery.

Norbertellen Gallery / 215 W. 6th (6th & Spring)

LIVE FROM ART WALK: Live@808's is an exhibition "where realtime video, audio, texting and other media collide and intermix in a playful and exciting environment facilitated by emergent technology.” The FEED_BACK is an inter/multi/media experiment that “engenders an awareness of the cogent ability of internet technologies to galvanize the world culture in a constructive manner.” Los Angeles Center for Digital Art / 102 W. 5th / Reception during Downtown Art Walk

WHAT THE NIGHT BRINGS: It’s a 9pm curtain at LATC’s The Vault. The rebels are genre-bending mix bag of original live music, performance art, movement and sketch comedy.
