For over 25 years, thousands of locals and visitors alike have converged on downtown Lexington to celebrate art during the LexArts HOP, with new gallery exhibitions, special events and food and drinks. With dozens of galleries and nontraditional exhibit spaces, the LexArts HOP is arguably Lexington’s most anticipated visual arts celebration, and this year, with the addition of an extra occurrence, it will happen on the third Friday of every other month.
You can begin at one of nearly 50 locations and visit as many or as few participating venues as you would like. Admission is always free. Though many shops, galleries and supporting venues are open earlier, the HOP officially starts at 5:00 p.m. and runs through 8:00 p.m., with many restaurants, bars and other nontraditional venues staying open considerably later.
Tour the HOP site and each site’s individual page for information on current exhibits, special events, location and operating hours. Official HOP guides are available at Arts- Place, 161 North Mill Street, or can be downloaded by clicking here.
