About Us

Welcome to Gallery Row

Gallery Row is an arts and culture district in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles.  Come visit over 50 art galleries, museums, theatres, and public art installations all within walking distance or experience the Downtown Art Walk every 2nd Thursday from 6-10PM.

Development in Downtown Los Angeles has progressed beyond its dormant potential into a realm of cultural abundance. Projects once thought impossible now contribute beautiful edifices to an increasingly cosmopolitan skyline.

Street life, community activism, and a sense of pride have all risen and altered the discourse about what it means to live and work in Downtown Los Angeles.

Gallery Row is located in the center of Downtown Los Angeles near the Civic Center, Historic Core, Old Bank, and the Fashion District. With the Walt Disney Concert Hall and MOCA on Grand Avenue to the west, Little Tokyo to the east, LA Live! and the Staples Center to the south, Gallery Row is well positioned as a hub of cultural activity.
