The Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk will likely never return to the days when perhaps 100 people strolled among a dozen galleries on Spring and Main streets one evening each month. Seven years after gallery owners and business leaders had the idea that Angelenos would promenade a block from Skid Row, the event now draws up to 30,000 visitors, beckoned by four dozen galleries and numerous bars, restaurants and food trucks. It has both spurred the revitalization of downtown and grown with it. But some patrons seem more interested in carousing than browsing — let alone buying — art. Bitter squabbling among business owners and Art Walk organizers has, at times, threatened to dissolve the event altogether.

The Conejo Valley Art Museum is looking for someone to coordinate its 10th annual juried Art Walk show, a two-day event featuring 150 artists. No encyclopedic knowledge of Picasso required; museum director Maria Dessornes said the primary quality she's looking for is energy. "They have to be energetic and a self-starter," Dessornes said. "And they have to be able to coordinate."

The streets of downtown Los Angeles overflowed with artists, musicians and assorted revelers Thursday night, signaling a healthy rebound for the Downtown Art Walk, whose future was in jeopardy just a few weeks ago. Attendance at the monthly event appeared slightly heavier than normal, though exact figures were not immediately available. A diverse crowd milled about the area known as Gallery Row, which is bounded roughly by Spring and Main streets between 4th and 7th streets. It also drew the usual contingent of food trucks and sidewalk merchants whose presence had become a bone of contention between business owners and event organizers.

The future of the Downtown Art Walk, which draws more than 20,000 people to a monthly stroll of downtown galleries and nightspots and has been credited with helping revitalize the area, was uncertain Tuesday following a dispute among its top leaders. The dispute broke out Friday with a message on the art walk's official website saying the walks had been canceled through the end of the year and that they would resume in 2011 as quarterly events. But then on Sunday, the organization's board of directors sent out a release saying that the next art walk would take place Oct. 14 as previously scheduled and that the group's executive director, Jay Lopez, had published the earlier announcement without the approval of the board.
