Event Details

The event begins at 4 p.m. and winds down at 10 p.m.  It is reportedly an active, artistic, fun and family-friendly event.  Specifically, it is an annual free tour of the numerous studies of both the artists and artisans of the Elysian Valley also affectionately known to some as “Frogtown”.  It is produced and hosted by members of the Elysian Valley Arts Collective (EVAC).  It is co-sponsored by the Los Angeles City Council District 13 and Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell.  

Highlights

In a recent posting online the hosts of The Frogtown Art Walk 2016 discussed the upcoming event.  They seemed excited about it.  They noted: “The 2016 Frogtown Artwalk is dedicated to Lewis MacAdams, founder of Friends of the Los Angeles River, and his vision of the river restoration as a 40-year art project.  As Lewis has said ‘…the Friends of the LA River created the idea of a swimmable, fishable, boatable, bikeable (and likable) river.  We work with politics, with the environment. with social movements, basically with people who want to see the river come back to life in their time. It is an act of conscious magic we try to pull off on a yearly basis’.”   They added: “This year, we celebrate Lewis and his vision as we work to create the little bit of magic each year known as the Frogtown Artwalk.”  In conclusion, they stated that bicycles are welcome.
