The Downtown Art Walk, which is centered around Gallery Row, might be all the buzz tonight, but over in the nearby Arts District, a new 24-foot tall mural at Traction and E. 3rd by Shepard Fairey has just gone up, says Ed Fuentes at blogdowntown. It's called the "Peace Goddess" and is part of LA Freewall project, which could turn the area into largest outdoor art gallery. ALSO: Fairey's art gallery, Subliminal Projects, has a new show featuring work by WK Interact. It's a solo exhibition called "How To Blow Yourself Up."
