Calling All Artists!

We are now accepting submissions for our spring Juried Art Show of 2021. We are asking artists to reflect on the theme of "Home." What's your idea of home? Is it a feeling? How has your view of home changed over this past year?

The show will be juried by a selected panel and winners will receive a cash prize. And yes, it's totally FREE to submit!

The Elysian Valley Arts Collective (E.V.A.C.), a Frogtown based arts 501(c)3 non-profit, is dedicated to preserving and promoting an inclusive community along the Los Angeles River consisting of artisans, businesses, community organizations and local residents, in order to cultivate a sense of place, a vibrant local economy and arts education for youth.


By Mimi Phan (2016)

In 2016, and in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles’ first Public Art Biennial “Current: LA Water,” the EVAC commissioned a short documentary entitled “Our River” from local filmmaker Mimi Phan. The film, which records through oral histories the historic relationship between the community of Elysian Valley and the Los Angeles River, was selected by the New Filmmakers LA for inclusion in their 2016 film festival, On Location. It was subsequently selected for the LA Harbor International Film Festival and screened as part of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs event “Great Streets”.
