Art Hop

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 COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, Art Hop has gone virtual. 

Since the spring of 2020, the Arts Council has presented Art Hop monthly on the ACGK Facebook page. While in-person Art Hops are on hiatus, we are pleased that we can still present the artwork you love and enjoy, as well as provide artists and organizations a platform to showcase their work.

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.

We look forward to the time when we can present Art Hop as an in-person event, engage with the artists, and connect with our local businesses and venues in downtown Kalamazoo. Until then, we hope you will join us monthly for virtual Art Hop on our Facebook page.
