Food trucks, open galleries and late-night shop hours—it's the triumvirate of L.A. street fest staples in full force at First Fridays. The monthly Abbot Kinney celebration brings out locals and distant Angelenos alike for bites and sales in the fashionable Venice 'hood. Show up early to find a parking spot, otherwise you'll waste time circling for spots when you could've been lining up for that cheesy goodness from the perennial-favorite Grilled Cheese Truck.
More than ever, Los Angeles is becoming an art mecca. From the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles to beachside communities, artists are creating beautiful pieces of work, be it oil paintings, sculptures or glassworks. In an effort to support these local artists and art galleries, communities organize art walks throughout the year, which go beyond art and include live music, food and more. Whether you're just looking to support the cause or you're in search of that perfect piece to hang above your mantle, here are the best art walk options in Los Angeles.
