CALLING ALL ARTISTS
The Elysian Valley Arts Collective will be postponing the biennial Frogtown Artwalk to October 2021.
In response, we have launched an online initiative called "FROGTOWN 2020", a working collective archive of experiences and narratives expressed through the arts during the quarantine. Share your work with us!
CATALYZING COMMUNITY THROUGH THE ARTS
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.

We are asked to stay isolated at home at a time where being together is needed more than ever during the COVID-19 crisis. #Frogtown2020 is a working collective archive of experiences and narratives of residents and artists, as well as business owners and employees in, Elysian Valley, expressed through the arts.
Throughout the duration of the quarantine view our weekly art challenges, artist interviews, stories and more. We whole-heartedly encourage you to participate, post your submissions and share our posts with friends and family.
"Thank you for your commitment to support the diverse community of artists and artisans in Elysian Valley. Your support of the arts helps to make Los Angeles a wonderful place to live and work."
