Where in Ann Arbor, Michigan does Art Hop happen?
We have three nearby focus areas 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 around the neighborhood, most of whom may host other artists, Eberwhite and Princeton-5th include non-artist-hosts (our generous neighbors) as well. Eighty or more artists from near and far display their work; how many we can accommodate depends upon how many kind neighbors offer to host our artists between Pauline & W Liberty.
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 Chilcare centers in the neighborhood host Art Hop for the weekend. We really are ensconced in the neighborhood, dependent 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.
Please do read the Prospectus/Artists Agreement, and use our Contact page if you have questions. We hope you'll join us!
* Our artists are placed on the private property of a host, so it's reasonable to expect that they should be vaccinated & boosted before entering.
Also Mask Up! in crowded areas. Please encourage our visitors to do so too.
