THOUGHTS N FEELINGS

Galleries Now Open on Sundays

Sundays serve as a key indicator of economic vitality Downtown. In our recent past - with the exception of shops along Broadway and vendors in the Fashion District - things generally went quiet on the weekends. As new businesses started to arrive within the past decade, most remained closed on Sundays. They felt as though the demand wasn't there. Restaurants, bars and nightlife started to change that, keeping people here not just later into the night but also through the weekend. In the past two years more retailers have followed suit, and this week over half a dozen galleries - primarily in the Arts District, The Flats, and Under Ten - have announced switching their hours to be open on Sundays. It's a good sign for arts spaces in Downtown LA, signaling the significant role that art plays in attracting weekend visitors and encouraging locals to stay around the area rather than leave.     

Visit MAMA Gallery, CB1 Gallery, Rosamund Felsen, The Box, Chimento Contemporary, Cirrus Gallery, Wilding Cran, Durden & Ray, BLAM, Jason Vass and Royale Projects - now on Sundays too.
