Art Hop is a typically quirky Ann Arbor event. Local artists on the historic West Side open their homes or studios to the public, and visiting artists share spaces in neighbors' porches, garages, yards, in Gretchen's House Childcare Center I, or with local artist-hosts. The festive two-day event is in a walkable area with easy parking. Held in June and October, Art Hop is inexpensive for artists and FREE to visitors.
The idea for Art Hop grew up organically from a few local artists: Sophie Grillet, Laila Kujala, Susan Major, and Lucie and Larry Nisson. Sophie Grillet is now the organizer with indispensable support from Lucie and Larry, essential organizational assistance from Anne Rogers (aka Twirling Frog) and terrific publicity by Tia Sunshine with help from Cathy Mellett. Mapping help from Mary Lou Olds.
