This past Thursday, I had the amazing opportunity to attend ArtHop. This event occurs every first Thursday of each month in downtown Fresno and in the Tower District. I enjoyed my experience with my fellow Humanics scholars. We walked in the downtown area, visiting several galleries. I had an awesome experience being able to see everything that different artists had to offer.
Walking through the artwork was an incredible experience. It was good to slow down and be able to appreciate the artwork that was on display. It was a great feeling to get lost in the artwork, letting you get lost in whatever way you interpreted it. It was nice though to be able to read about what the artist was going through or thinking about when he or she was making his or her art. It was also fun to have discussions with my classmates about the art we encountered.
This was definitely a great experience that I would highly recommend for others to take some time to experience. It really helped in settling my mind for a bit in the rush that life can become. It is a good time to spend with friends learning and enjoying some food.
