Hold an Event

Art Hop

Art Hop is a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo – an evening of art exhibits and events, one of the great things to do in Kalamazoo. It's a free event held on the first Friday of every month, it is something you can do alone, with friends, or with family that’s fun, interactive, and a great way to explore our downtown. And you don’t have to be an “artist” to enjoy it.

The Arts Council is funded by the generous support of the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation, the Harold and Grace Upjohn Foundation and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs with additional Art Hop sponsors G56Cornerstone Technologies, Discover Kalamazoo, Downtown Kalamazoo, Inc., Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Toyota and WMUK.
