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.

Tours of artists' studios and significant architecture, an art auction, a food fair and live entertainment are among the offerings this week at the annual Venice Art Walk. The events include art and architecture tours -- one of "green" homes and the other of private homes and art collections on the Marina Peninsula -- on Saturday. On Sunday, about 60 artists open their studios for tours, while attendees can patronize a daylong food fair at Westminster School, 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd.

The tourists think big. Arriving in Southern California, they expect to conquer Disneyland and Hollywood, perhaps on the same day, in between the surfing and snowboarding. Then they get stuck in traffic. Then come the recriminations, the tears, the vows to visit an island next time. The locals think small. Tracing tight little loops between home and work, they dodge freeways and alien neighborhoods. There are Los Feliz people who haven't set foot in Venice since the latter Bush administration (I'm one)

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.
