Where in Ann Arbor are the artists' venues?
We have three focus areas on the West Side south of W Liberty: the Eberwhite area; the Princeton & 4th-6th St area; and the 1st-3rd St area. All include artists' own homes or studios, most of whom may host other artists. Eberwhite and Princeton-5th include volunteer hosts (our generous neighbors) who are not themselves artists.
You don't need a tent!
Most of our artists are in garages, or on porches, or - if you have your own 10' x 10' tent - in a yard or a driveway. We are also fortunate that two Gretchen's House Childcare centers in the neighborhood host Art Hop for the weekend. We depend on the generosity and goodwill of neighbors to host our artists. We are one of the great local events that people love about Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Saturday 10 am - 5 pm
Sunday noon - 5 pm.
* Our artists are placed on the private property of a host, so it's reasonable that we honor any vaccinated artist request.
Also be prepared to Mask Up! if requested to. Some folks are vulnerable.
