Frogtown Artwalk 2013

The Frogtown Artwalk returns on Saturday, September 28 for its eighth year in a row.

One of our favorite annual events, the artwalk is family-friendly event in neighboring Elysian Valley, just a hop, skip and a jump from Echo Park. It’s never crazy crowded, you meet lots of neighbors, and there’s always a little bit of wine and local craft beer flowing.

This year, the “river pavilion” will feature live music along with info on the river restoration efforts. Creator of the “LA River Catz,” Leo Limon, will be at RAC Design Build along with Mary-Austin Klein (the artist whose work is featured at the top of the The Eastsider LA website). There are a lot of youth events, including a youth art show on River Ecology. And for the first time at the Artwalk is Bookshow LA at the NOMAD art complex, featuring a selection of books in an interactive retail space.

There are a ton of great events throughout evening, click here to view the Frogtown Artwalk map with full event details.

This Saturday marks the fifth annual Frogtown Artwalk event put on for studios and art galleries in nearby Elysian Valley area alongside the LA River. The artwalk is free, self-guided, and looks like a lot of fun!

This year you can expect a few things going on other than art exhibits (more than 30 studios are participating), including hula hoopers, DJs, an art and drum parade, outdoor screenings, drinks and live music. One of the films, which will be projected on an inflatable screen in Elysian Valley Gateway park, is about the history of Frogtown, and features photos and interviews with neighbors and artists.
