The artists, artisans, and architects of LA’s Elysian Valley, otherwise known as Frogtown, are pleased to announce the eighth annual Frogtown Artwalk, a celebration of the creativity and talent flourishing in the industrial buildings of this working class neighborhood along the LA River. During last year’s event, thousand of visitors and locals alike strolled the newly paved river bike/walking path from studio to studio, and many were treated to fleeting sights of La Llorona as she came out from the river to dance between the buildings.
This year, the Artwalk will feature a “river pavilion” with information on on-going river restoration efforts and live music. A youth art show will offer interpretations on the theme of “River Ecology”. Artist Leo Limon, creator of the “storm drain cats”, will share his knowledge of the neighborhood. A series of movie projections onto the trees in the riverbed will guide visitors from studio to studio.
For the first time, the Frogtown Artwalk will also offer a celebration of text and the written word. Bookshow LA, located in the NOMAD art complex at 1993 Blake Ave., is home to a careful selection of new, used and vintage books showcased in an interactive creative retail space. Stop by Bookshow LA to participate in a spontaneous poetry event by “Typewriter Poetry” and to see altered books created by local artisans.
