For only $30, their self-guided tour provides ticketholders with access to the amazing culture of the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles with exclusive visits to artist studios, neighborhood art institutions, fascinating residences, and the warm hospitality of RESIDENT (428 S.

Proceeds benefit local and international service projects of Rotary DTLA. Recent projects included providing clean water, handwashing stations, and latrines to 1,500 students and their families at four schools and a clinic in Kenya; support of a community garden in Watts; and dictionaries for local schools. In addition to ticket sales, sponsors ensure the success of this event. Rotary DTLA thanks its sponsors Century Housing Corporation; Loftway; Downtown News; and RESIDENT. Through @DowntownMuse, I’m providing support for the tour through my social media channels AND I’m opening up my loft for attendees, too.

The self-guided tour starts at Art Share L.A. (801 E. 4th Pl., Los Angeles, CA 90013). Free parking for ticketholders is available at 321 S. Hewitt St., Los Angeles, CA 90013 across the street. Attendees are also encouraged to take public transportation. Take Metro’s Gold Line to Little Tokyo/Arts District Station and walk just a few blocks to Art Share L.A. (directions/map posted HERE).

Whiskey Grade and Cleveland Art

Whiskey Grade® owners Tom and Shirley Wronkovich, along with style expert Jamison Aweau, will be on hand to talk about the Cleveland-based independent retailer’s fuel-inspired apparel for men and functional, but chic, fashion for women. By doubling the size of his former L.A. showroom with this new shared space, Cleveland Art designer/owner Jason Wein is displaying an even greater selection of his vintage and recycled industrial design furnishings and handmade blown-glass lighting perfect for loft living, retail displays, and decor for hotels, restaurants, and offices.

During the Grand Opening, meet the East Side Moto Babes, a community of Los Angeles women who ride and race motorbikes; check out bikes by Roland Sands Designs; and enjoy a sampling of neighborhood offerings, including Boomtown Brewery and The Pie Hole. On view all month are new photographic works by Melissa Richardson Banks aka Downtown Muse, Mark Kovacs, Kate Mueller, and Shelby Holstein. Next door, the Arts District Co-Op is also celebrating its 2nd Anniversary all weekend long with art, music, food trucks, and artisan shopping!
