Twilight Time Art Walk on Pico Blvd covers about one and half blocks of newly developed shops and galleries, and features food trucks, DJs and antique shops. John Hicks of Ahhd Art also painted a mural across the street and had a display of his home-spun art. Not only that, but samples of the Lemon Supreme ice box pie made from his Auntie’s recipe were given out to willing participants. The people attending are cross-cultural and ethnically diverse, spanning all ages from young to old.

The shops are filled with ’20s and ’30s Art Deco art, cameras, jewelry, and clothing. A cross section of music-related photographs decorate the walls. In one of the shops, I spied the talented DJ Ayiko spinning, creating a special ambiance for the night. Walking from shop to shop, we kept finding interior eye candy at places like Sleek Modern, where the owner explained that you can change the decor of your place by returning and exchanging the pieces with him for new ones. Brain Works is full of lots of thoughtful and amazing pieces to choose from. Pinky Rose boutique is filled with clothes fit for any women to wear to the dog park or to the office. Pinky and her daughter are there to cater to all of their customers’ needs. Buckram Inc. gives the homeowner choices of classic pieces made in magnificent woods.

Make sure you stop by and see this new art hangout in LA!
