For over a quarter century, downtown Lexington has come
alive and artful, as galleries and museums, artists’ studios, and other
creative spaces have opened their doors on the third Friday of every other
HOP is LexArts’—and Lexington’s—signature event. We and the
30-plus partner venues you’ll find listed in these pages welcome you to our
HOP began as a way to encourage everyone to look at and buy
art—and that is still its mission. Affordable, unique pieces in many media and
in every genre are on view at HOP sites. Often you can meet the artists
themselves and learn about their work first hand. Collecting need not be
mysterious or expensive. You can own beautiful objects on any budget. And
discover fascinating friends and fresh ideas as well.
No one has yet to visit every HOP venue on a single Friday
night. We don’t recommend trying! Visit as many or as few as you like—and
please come back the next time to experience the new exhibitions and new sites.
We’re thrilled to once again welcome Republic Bank as our HOP Sponsor. With their help we can continue to bring an up-close and personal
experience of the visual arts to Lexingtonians and visitors alike. Visit LexArts.org/HOP
