THE FROGTOWN ARTWALK

The Frogtown Artwalk is a biennial self-guided tour of artists and makers studios and curated exhibits in local businesses in Elysian Valley. The 11th biennial Artwalk stretched 2 miles along the LA River and featured 53 artists in 41 venues. We welcomed 8,000 visitors that year.

SOUNDS OF ELYSIAN VALLEY

The EVAC’s “Sounds of Elysian Valley” is an on-going series of classes with our partners, Dorris Place Elementary School and Elysian Valley United. Students learn photography, writing, interview and video skills and apply them to stories about the neighborhood of Elysian Valley

COMMISSIONED FILMS

EVAC is interested in supporting young filmmakers by sponsoring documentary film projects that use oral history techniques and family photos to capture stories of the history of Frogtown. The organization has also commissioned films about the Frogtown Artwalk.

OUR

HISTORY

The EVAC was founded in 2008 as an umbrella organization to support the Frogtown Artwalk and art events in the Elysian Valley neighborhood. 

 

We received funding from Council District 13, the local neighborhood council (a volunteer advisory board to the City Council), and from local businesses.
