Tonight's the second Thursday of the month, meaning that it's time for the Downtown Art Walk in LA's Historic Core. Dozens of galleries and arts venues participate into the wee hours of the evening, but there's much more than art happening, tonight. Two salons are being held at Clifton's from 5:30-7:30 pm: One on writer John Fante hosted by biographer Stephen Cooper; the second is on LAvender Los Angeles, a look at the emergence of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in Los Angeles, starting in 1950. Over at HABEAS LOUNGE, a salon will dive into local bicycle and public transit issues.

There's also music, live projection art and art performances from 8-11 pm at the Spring Arcade. Unfortunately, the free Hippodrome shuttle isn't running because of the loss of funding from the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council. So you're going to have to hoof it around the Art Walk tonight. Don't worry, LA food trucks are sure to abound to give you sustenance: At least we know that a Kogi truck is scheduled for JANM and Coolhaus also plans up serving the sammies tonight, too.
