About Art Hop

Thank you for a great 2017 event! See you the weekend of April 28-29, 2018. Application online in December. 

About Art Hop 2017:

The work of over 70 artists is installed inside the shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes of Takoma. Art includes painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, jewelry, pottery, mosaic and more offered for sale at a variety of price points. Live outdoor music and dance performances are planned all weekend at the Takoma Park Gazebo, 7035 Carroll Avenue.

Grab an Art Hop Map from any of the participating businesses (Look for the Art Hop Stop sign) or at the Art Hop Info Booth at the Takoma Park Gazebo, 7035 Carroll Avenue, and explore art at your own pace while taking in “Meet-the-Artist” receptions and live performances all weekend. The Art Hop Map doubles as a punch card which will be stamped at each Art Hop Stop location and may be turned in at the Art Hop Info Booth to be eligible for prize drawings!

Presented by the Old Takoma Business Association, Your Main Street Takoma.
