During the LexArts HOP, thousands of locals and visitors alike converge on downtown Lexington to celebrate art throughout the evening with new gallery exhibitions, special events, and food and drinks. With dozens of galleries and non-traditional exhibit spaces, the LexArts HOP is arguably Lexington's most anticipated visual arts celebration, and it happens on the third Friday of every other month!
Patrons begin at one of nearly 50 locations and visit as many or as few participating venues as they would like. Each site presents an exciting new exhibit for each HOP and, thanks to the generosity of many, admission is always free. Though many shops, galleries and supporting venues are open earlier, the HOP officially starts at 5:00pm and runs through 8:00pm, with many restaurants, bars and other non-traditional venues staying open considerably later.
Please tour the HOP site and each site's individual page for information on current exhibits, special events, location, operating hours and more. Official HOP guides are available at ArtsPlace, 161 North Mill Street, or may be downloaded below. See you on the HOP!
