“I wanted to let you know that my husband and I went to the Art House-Hop on Saturday. It was such a delight! The art was so interesting – eclectic, beautiful, intriguing, a touchstone of people’s lives and travels. We felt so warmly connected to the community, collectors and viewers alike. So: thank you! It’s just wonderful, in conception and execution.”
– Audrey Hackett

The Art House Hop was created as a way to honor the wonderful Art Collectors of Yellow Springs. And also as a way to see beautiful art in private collections that we might not have a chance to see otherwise.

2017 was the 5th year of this great adventure. Each year we discover more art collectors in the village and more fabulous art! The art collections have been amazingly varied. They have ranged from many generations of Ohio Artists to International Artists to Historical Art Collections from around the world.

The 2017 Art House Hop featured 6 different Art Collections.

The tour was rain or shine. The homes were located all around town, so biking or driving between homes would be recommended, rather than walking. The Art House Hop was a self-guided tour which one could visit in any order and at their own pace. The homeowners were be on hand to greet guests and answer questions. Attendees were encouraged to be sure to make time to visit the YSAC Community Gallery!

The Art House-Hop was a Fundraiser for the Yellow Springs Arts Council. Each ticket purchase included a brochure with a description of each collection, addresses and a map.

Below is a quote from a lovely article by Meredith Moss about the Art House-Hop that appeared in the Dayton Daily News on August 30, 2015.

“The Art House-Hop in Yellow Springs was an exceptional experience. The art was diverse; in about every style one could image. To be able to see it in the natural setting of homes was wonderful. The hosts were very gracious and shared stories about their art collection: the artists, where they got their piece (s) and why. Local artists were very well represented; such a pleasure. It was refreshing, unique, and a lot of fun. ” — Sandi Sharp
