Why do I love the downtown art walk?
People walking in L.A.: The bus stop at 5th and Main was bustling with people, no longer the sketchy sidewalk where last year I was accosted by a homeless man pushing $1 porn. When I repeatedly declined ($1 porn must have terrible production value), he checked to make sure I was over 18 (thank you!).
Artists: At the Spring Arts Tower, I talked to Greg Boudreau about his beautiful work on salvaged wood.
Two of his pieces that caught my eye tonight:
Performers: I hopped on the art bus to say hi to my friend Thessaly, a.k.a. The Ukulady, who rides around entertaining passengers on the shuttle. She is adorable and hilarious, playing funny songs on her ukulele.
A lovely night in downtown L.A.: People strolling the streets and stopping to talk, artists performing, DJs spinning, and food trucks as far as the eye can see.
