Frogtown Art Walk doesn't look like much from the outside, but that's not what counts. Now in its 6th year, this Elysian Valley walk manages to keep it's focus on the art, and attract a crowd that cares about it, too.
This art walk is great because visitors really get to see artist studios, and experience more (good) art per block than most L.A. Art walks provide. So far, it hasn't become a giant red cup party. Hopefully, the good art continues to grow, and remain the backbone of the experience. Next year? The music needs to be a little softer, and signage a little brighter.
I like industrial means I like Lewis Mauk's past 5 toothbrushes.
Mary-Austin Klein's hip studio space and great landscape paintings that anyone from the area will love. Photorealistic, yet painterly. Excellent price points and lots of red dots.
Bill Lagattuta's impressive arrows
NOMAD's musical animal screen prints. A Rhinoccordian?
Paper lamps above the children's hula hoop contest.
