Vibrant Artist Community in Los Angeles Offers An Evening Of Art & Entertainment
Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 4-10 PM
The artists, artisans, and architects of Los Angeles’ Elysian Valley, otherwise known as Frogtown, are pleased to announce the sixth annual Frogtown Artwalk, a celebration of the creativity and talent flourishing in the industrial buildings and working class neighborhood along the LA River. Thousands are expected to tour artists’ studios, enjoy indie bands and the offerings of food trucks and experience art being produced in this unique section of the city.
Visitors can wander along the newly paved pedestrian and bike path along the river, where years ago frogs rose up and invaded the neighborhood, giving Frogtown its unique name. In the past decade, an influx of artists and craftsmen have relocated to Elysian Valley in search of creative spaces. More than thirty will open their studios and lofts for this year’s self-guided tour. Lighted balloons will guide visitors in and out of the various workspaces.
