LOS ANGELES, CA - Gallery Row invites the public to attend its official
Unveiling Ceremony to be held at 1:00 PM on May 15, 2004 at Biddy Mason Park inside
the Broadway Spring Center Courtyard (333 S. Spring Street, LA, CA 90013) in
Downtown Los Angeles. Following the Unveiling, visitors are encouraged to take
a self-guided tour of Gallery Row. Maps with event information will be
available and the public is encouraged to explore the district until well in to the
late evening. Details are available at www.galleryrow.org
At select locations along the route, the Gallery Row Windows Display Project
will showcase installation art by Los Angeles contemporary artists. Every art
gallery along Gallery Row will be open to the public and special exhibitions
will be mounted for the day only. Participating Galleries and Organizations
include Inshallah Gallery, Groop, Bank, Modern Art Downtown, Gallery 727, and
Reaching to Embrace the Arts (RtEA). Strange Company also presents the first
annual "Gallery Row Readings," a free day of play readings by Story is the Thing
Productions and Lodestone Theatre Ensemble at the Los Angeles Theatre Center
(514 S. Spring Street, LA, CA 90013) from 3:00-10:00 PM. Center for Visual Music
will be having a film screening of Experimental Animation from 7pm to 10pm at
600 S. Spring. Hidden Treasures Functional Art shop from 1pm to 5pm along
with film and video installations that will be running all day at 600 S.
Spring. Dangerous Curve will present performance artists at select locations on the
streets along Gallery Row throughout the day.
Discounted parking (with validation) is available at the Broadway Spring
Center at 333 S. Spring Street, as well as metered street parking. Visitors are
also encouraged to arrive by Metro Rail and bus; as Gallery Row is 2 blocks from
either the Civic Center or Pershing Square Red Line Stations.
Gallery Row is located in the center of the architecturally significant
section of Los Angeles's historic downtown, which is currently at the beginning of
a vibrant revitalization. With the Financial District, Disney Hall, and MOCA
on Grand Avenue to the west, Little Tokyo to the east, and Staples Center to
the south, Gallery Row is well positioned to become a hub of cultural activity.
Gallery Row is an Ad Hoc Committee of the Arts, Aesthetics, and Culture (AAC)
Committee under the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council (DLANC). The
Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council is an official body certified by the
City of Los Angeles to advise the city on issues affecting the residents,
workers, and all other stakeholders of the city.
On July 29, 2003, the Los Angeles City Council designated the area along Main
and Spring Streets between 2nd and 9th Streets in Downtown Los Angeles as
"Gallery Row." Street signs have been permanently installed along the perimeter
of the designated area to identify Los Angeles's latest creative district.
