Elysian Valley prepares for another Frogtown Artwalk

Wedged between the Los Angeles River and the 5 Freeway, the tiny homes and warehouses packed into Elysian Valley seem cut off from the rest of the city. The sense of isolation and seclusion appeals to many residents as well as long-time artists. But Elysian Valley, also called Frogtown, has been attracting more attention as more high profile artists convert former warehouse and industrial buildings into studios. On Saturday, outsiders can take a peek inside this artist community in this year's Frogtown Art Walk. More than 30 artists will be opening up their studios this year on the self-guided tour. If you are not into site specific installations or performance art, there will also be live music and, if you like, a night time stroll along the river.
