THE ART OF FROGTOWN
The Elysian Valley Arts Collective hosted their first-ever virtual Frogtown Artwalk that took place online October 16-18, 2020. The festival “The Art of Frogtown” recast its focus on artists, businesses, residents and cultural art programming that have made Frogtown/Elysian Valley an enclave of vibrancy, ingenuity and creativity.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the biennial Frogtown Artwalk went virtual with "The Art of Frogtown." People from all over the country joined us for a 3-day online event featuring exhibits, workshops, music, artist talks, kid's activities and more. Be sure to check out our Youtube channel to catch a recap of the Virtual Artwalk.
The Frogtown Artwalk is our signature event that happens on a biennial basis. By creating an artist profile, sponsoring the Artwalk, or donating, you directly give back our artist community which allows us to provide low-cost or free art programs for the youth and community of Elysian Valley.
Thank you all who have joined us on this virtual journey! We look forward to creating with you and cultivating an online presence for our artists.
WHAT IS THE "ART OF FROGTOWN"?
Customarily, the Frogtown Artwalk takes places along the Los Angeles River, which acts as muse and backdrop to the festival. This year was no exception with our online festival "The Art of Frogtown," as the river figures prominently in the programming of the virtual event; with photography, poetry, art workshops and exhibits featuring the river and the natural habitat that surrounds it.
You can browse art from local artists who participated, or catch a recap of the virtual events.
