WTTD is going on a field trip!

hurrah! WTTD is doing the Downtown Art Walk tonight where we’ll dine and schmooze and dance beneath the stars. or at least dance beneath the smog beneath the stars.

so clever...

definitely going to be checking out the Todd/Browning Gallery with an opening for ultimate color-me-badd-ass tornado photographer Eric Nguyen, who passed away probably from fighting god in like hand-to-hand combat but god died, too.

look, he's taking a picture of jesus satan's soul...

here’s more info on the Downtown Art Walk which is free and fun and junk.

The Downtown Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour of the many art
exhibition venues in Downtown Los Angeles — commercial art galleries,
museums, and non-profit arts venues. Public information and a
printable pdf map of the Downtown Art Walk are available at http://www.downtownartwalk.com

The Downtown Art Walk began in September 2004 and has grown enormously
since, with many thousands of people attending every month.
Participants in the Downtown Art Walk are the more than 40 galleries
and museums located throughout the central downtown area, within the
walkable districts between Grand Avenue/Disney Hall/ MOCA, Little
Tokyo, the Financial District, and centered around Gallery Row on Main
and Spring Streets in the Historic Core. Most venues are open at least
12-9 pm, but some may open later than 12 pm or close earlier than 9
pm; specific exceptions are listed next to each venue on the map.

The Downtown Art Walk has received numerous citations and awards from
the Downtown News, The City of Los Angeles, the American Planning
Association, and has been covered widely in the media, including PBS,
KABC, KNBC, The Los Angeles Times, the LA Weekly, and others. The
Downtown Art Walk will be featured in the National Main Street
Conference being held in Chicago in March 2009.

A Free Art Walk shuttle called “The Hippodrome,” runs 6-10 pm and
moves visitors around the Gallery Row portion of the Downtown Art
Walk. Pickups and stops are available on demand — just wave to the
vehicle to stop or alert the driver to exit. The shuttle is a vintage
retrofitted 1940s school bus, and is hosted by Kim Cooper and Richard
Schave of Esotouric, who curate it as moving performance venues. Many
thanks to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council for their
generous sponsorship of the shuttle.

The Downtown Art Walk is generously sponsored by the The Los Angeles
Downtown News, Patina Restaurant Group, The Downtown Los Angeles
Neighborhood Council and the Historic Downtown Business Improvement
District. Sponsoring area restaurants, bars, stores and services are
also listed on the Art Walk map. Media sponsors are CitizenLA, The Los
Angeles Downtown News, Metromix, and The Onion.

Visitors are encouraged to arrive by the abundant public transit
network in Los Angeles, as the Art Walk is easily accessible by the
Metro Red, Gold, and Blue line trains until midnight, scores of local
buses, and many Rapid buses, many of which run until midnight. Parking
is plentiful in the area, at meters on the street until 4 pm, and free
after 6 pm on most streets. There is a sponsoring, indoor parking
garage which offers a $5 flat rate and is open 24 hours (details on
map). Once here, local LA City DASH buses are an easy way to get
around for only 25¢ until 6 pm, and there is free, special evening
shuttle service on Art Walk nights from 6–10 pm — the exact route is
shown on the Art Walk map.

  1. I ride a tornado to work everyday. Does anyone care? Seriously is tears down buildings and kills people and shit. You know how fucking hard it is to ride one of those?

  2. @jesus satan
    Yeah it’s Japanese. Seriously, I’m so loaded during my morning commutes I’ve literally killed dozens of people and easily caused about 9-13 grand in property damage in the Tornado.

  3. Are you two editing my comments to add links? Link whores! Don’t paint me with your harlot brush!
