Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places I © Qathryn Brehm

It's time for a quiz. May 9 is the next Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk, and the self-guided tour of galleries is which designated neighborhood? A) The Historic Core, B) Gallery Row, or C) the Old Bank District?

Veteran Art Walkers will know it's "all of the above," but if you are new to the event, you can make a map online, or get on at the official Art Walk Lounge. And, as always, the afternoon and early evening are for art believers -- before the party crowd takes over -- so here's a peek at the art for Nueve De Mayo.

You're not one of those folks who thinks culture and beer don't mix, are you? Good, because this week is full of both. From downtown's always innovative REDCAT productions to the L.A. Vegan Beer Fest along the Sunset Strip, there's plenty of live music, great food and (of course) drinking going down this week. And we haven't even gotten to Cinco de Mayo yet!

The Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk is this Thursday, April 11, and it's certain a party atmosphere will be there. But for those brave souls who like art with their art walk, there's plenty to see before and during the official event hours of 6 and 10 p.m. Sneaking in before the crowds is the one good way to plan your self-guided experience. Here's a peek for later this week.

This week, let the art of the city soak over you. Los Angeles, despite its superficial misgivings, is teeming with art and culture, some that dates back hundreds of years. And while it's always fun to head for the beach or obsessively plan your Saturday night, spending some time indoors with the art that has come to define L.A. is never a bad thing. Here are the best artsy fartsy events going on this week, plus some regular ol' stuff in case you get burned out on all that culture.
