Nearly a dozen artists are thrilled to be setting up their stalls for the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo's Art Hop this Friday, says Programs Director Bianca Washington-Ciungan. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, Washington-Ciungan explains that for the first time since the pandemic began, Art Hop will be in-person, but outdoors. She also thought it was important to continue online Art Hop as well, so there are artist interviews and other features available at the Arts Council website
