LexArts HOP, presented by VisitLEX
On the third Friday of every other month, downtown Lexington is the place to be.
JAN 20 | MAR 17 | MAY 19 | JUL 21 | SEP 15 | NOV 17
That’s LexArts HOP night, eagerly anticipated, enthusiastically attended, a choose-your-own-adventure event designed to put you in the rooms with a stimulating cross-section of local visual art.
On HOP night, dozens of galleries, museums, artists’ studios, and creative spaces conventional-and-un, collectively throw open their doors. And everyone, from seasoned Hoppers to arts newbies to just-lookers, to collectors, to people simply wanting to make the scene, is welcome to wander in.
HOP has something for locals and visitors alike. A chance to encounter the visual arts up close and personal. To expand horizons, cultivate taste, open eyes and minds. To browse venue after venue of unique, affordable works in a dizzying spectrum of media, materials and genres. To socialize with friends and strangers. To put faces to the artists who envision and create these works. And to maybe start a new collection or add the perfect piece to an existing one.
HOP happens six times a year, because it’s more than even the most ambitious can take in on a single Friday night. And because Lexington’s vibrant visual arts scene never stands still — new exhibitions and new sites rotate in and out of an ever-changing roster — there’s always something new to experience.
