On the third Friday of every other month, downtown Lexington is the place to be. And it has been for 30 years. LexArts HOP night, eagerly anticipated, enthusiastically attended, a choose-your-own adventure which puts you in touch with a stimulating cross-section of local visual art. Dozens of galleries, museums, artists’ studios, and creative spaces (conventional-and-un) collectively throw open their doors. Everyone, from seasoned Hoppers to arts newbies, from lookers to collectors, are welcome to wander in. For locals and visitors alike, HOP offers a chance to encounter visual arts up close and personal. To expand horizons, cultivate taste, open eyes and minds. To browse venues of unique, affordable works in a dizzying spectrum of media, materials, and genres. To socialize with friends and strangers. To put faces to the artists who envision and create these works. And to maybe start a new collection or add the perfect piece to your space. HOP happens six times a year, because it’s more than even the most ambitious can take in on a single Friday night. And because Lexington’s vibrant visual arts scene never stands still – new exhibitions and sites rotate in and out of an ever-changing roster – there’s always something new to experience. Some HOP sites are pop-ups, but many have regular hours that you can find in this handy HOP Guide, produced, as is the event itself, with the invaluable help of our esteemed 2024 HOP Sponsor VisitLEX.
