I know what you're thinking. ArtHop huh? Didn't you say you were gonna leave the art to the big leagues? Okay, so I lied. I am a crafter, but I do appreciate art. Fun Kim + Art story: I seriously just spent 10 minutes trying to write out ArtHop all fancy-like to use as a picture before giving up and settling on this map pilfered from The Downtown Association. I know my limits.
ArtHop is just cool, though. Local artists get a chance to shine. People who may not be comfortable just walking into a gallery on any other day have a chance to come out when they know there will be an event. It gets people involved as a community in the arts. Plus its art, who doesn't love art?
And its tonight! Get out, grab something artsy, some fancy tea or a latte from one of our local shops, and go hop it up. This is something that makes Fresno very unique and adds a bit of adventure to an otherwise mundane day of the week. I mean seriously, Thursday, WTF? Its not like it has a fun nickname like "Hump Day" Its just stuck between the hump and the fan favorite day, so go show Thursday some love and respect and get out and discover some of the incredible artists we have here in town.
(Photo by Google, via The Downtown Association, plus some clever Prt Scrn button magic. That's right I can crop, which is underrated as an art form, by the way. I got especially artistic with the one border on the side. Or maybe I just didn't notice it until now... You'll never know, I'll never tell.)
