On the second Sunday of every month, people gather on East 1st Street between Indiana and Alma streets to enjoy art, music and food and to participate in the East Los Angeles Art Walk.
The Art Walk is a block-long outdoor event on the sidewalks on both sides of 1st Street. Artists and vendors welcome passersby, who come and go throughout the afternoon and early evening. Participating musicians like Borderline Promises, a local alternative rock duo, and Kamini Natarajan, an Indian classical musician, perform live on a small makeshift space with colorful decorations in front of Quetzal Boutique.
The East L.A. Art Walk has more of a homegrown art feel than others, artists say, including the art walks in downtown Los Angeles, Montebello and Pomona.
