How do you revive an area and see it transform into a hotspot that goes from around 75 visitors to more than 15,000 weekly passersby? That’s the process that began to take place in 2003 when Nic Cha Kim and Kjell Hagen submitted a proposal to the Los Angeles City Council for the establishment of a district to be made up of local art galleries in the area. Because of the desire for inclusion from existing galleries, coupled with the expectation of expansion and infilling of the then largely vacant district, the proposal was approved and boundaries for Gallery Row were set.
The establishment of Gallery Row, and subsequent gentrification efforts, have transformed the once skid-row esq area into a regular Los Angeles hotspot. Gallery Row has become a promised wonderland for artists and the people who love them everywhere. Every 2nd Thursday of the month the Downtown Art Walk commences, drawing thousands of attendees to the area’s commercial art galleries, public museums, and non-profit arts venues. The area also saw an explosion in residential conversion of formerly vacant or underused commercial buildings between 2003 and 2010. Now recognized as one of the most significant success stories in Los Angeles History, Gallery Row and the Downtown Art Walk attract thousands of people to these artistically-clad L.A. streets regularly.
Gallery Row is not the only success story to make a recent splash in the Historic District.
