Westside Art Hop is for Artists
Ann Arbor Michigan's quirkiest Art Fair
Here at Art Hop we support artists and help them thrive. We keep the event low cost to participate, while maintaining high quality work to attract good art buyers.
Oct 2022 are open!
Applications from new artists are now open! Artists who are new to selling their work as well as experienced artists will be welcomed again for October. We actively encourage diversity and inclusion. If you don't (most of our artists don't) live in our area, we'll match you with one of our volunteer neighborhood hosts. You'll probably get the most value out of this event if you don't have to travel more than an hour to the West side of Ann Arbor. If you're new to Art Hop, you need first to Apply to the jury ($18).
Accepted artists following a successful Application, will be invited to Register.
Returning Artists, - who have been in Art Hop regularly (i.e. five or more times), may Register. If this is you, or you have been invited to Register, you may go ahead and complete the Registration form ($40).
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 which includes artists own homes or studios around the neighborhood, some of whom may host other artists as well. Around 80 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. Gretchen's House I & II Childcare Centers will be hosting some artists. 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.
* 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 the home or childcare center to use the restroom!
Also Mask Up! around other people, and request and require that our visitors do too. If hospitalized numbers in WashtenawCounty fall below 50/day, we'll lift restrictions, if hosts are happy.
