Gallery Row, Los Angeles, California


Gallery Row, Los Angeles, California

Gallery Row is a strip in Downtown Los Angeles that the City Council designated in 2003 to promote the concentration of art galleries along Main Street and Spring Street and to create a thriving, pedestrian-friendly, culturally abundant, urban neighborhood. Gallery Row spans north-south along Main and Spring Streets from 2nd Street in the north to 9th Street in the south.

Gallery Row was started based on a proposal by artists Nic Cha Kim and Kjell Hagen as members of the Arts, Aesthetics, and Culture Committee of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council (DLANC). Announced at the DLANC Block Party in June 2003, LA City Council members Jan Perry and Antonio Villaraigosa embraced the idea and presented it to City Council. Gallery Row was approved a month later.

The Downtown Art Walk began in 2004 and occurs every 2nd Thursday of the month from 12-9PM. The Downtown Art Walk is a monthly, self-guided tour of the art exhibition venues in Downtown Los Angeles, which includes commercial art galleries, public museums, and non-profit arts venues.
