If you haven’t found an excuse to visit the newly renovated LAX yet, here’s a good one. LAWA is presenting the first-ever art walk next weekend, with a live performance taking place at 7:30 p.m. both nights. The event is free and open to the public. To get to LAX via Metro, take the Green Line to Aviation Station and hop on the free shuttle, or Metro Bus 40, 102 to the LAX Transit Center.
