Art Hop 

is a free-of-charge, fun-filled evening of art exhibits and events in and around Kalamazoo. It typically takes place the first Friday of every month. Due to the social distancing guidelines in place because of COVID-19, Art Hop has gone virtual. 

Virtual Art Hop is hosted on Facebook each month and we invite you to to celebrate creativity and self expression thorough the arts. “Like” and “share” the artwork and — by commenting on the posts — participate in the discussion with artists and arts enthusiasts.  

Enjoy photos, videos, and live-streams of this curated show filled with a variety of artwork including dance, theatre, music, painting, ceramics, photography, and more.



Open Call for Artists – What Inspires You?

We are calling all artists — visual, theatrical, musical, tech and media, dance, and more — to post on the ACGK Facebook page from 5-6:30 pm on Friday, August 7. Share with us what inspires you or your works of inspiration!
