About The Elysian Valley Arts Collective and FROGTOWN 2020
Frogtown 2020 is a virtual initiative launched in April 2020 by The Elysian Valley Arts Collective, producers of the biennial Frogtown Artwalk. The initiative, which includes an online art gallery, art challenges, artist spotlights and interviews, editorial stories about residents, artists and businesses in Elysian Valley is in response to the postponement of the 2020 Frogtown Artwalk due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and Safer-at-Home Order. The initiative will continue throughout 2020. EVAC will be presenting a virtual Frogtown Artwalk in October 2020. Details to come.
