The Wilmington Art Loop — a self-guided exhibition of visual art displayed at galleries, studios, museums and alternative spaces in and around Wilmington — is returning Dec. 3, having been cancelled for 20 months by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Loop, a tradition for 33 years, usually occurred on the first weekend of the month, with many spaces opening monthlong shows. Openings also often featured refreshments.

Wednesday’s announcement of the return came from Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki, City Cultural Affairs Director Tina Betz and Jerry duPhily of Out & About. They promised details later, including information about the free shuttle that ran between spaces. Their announcement did not say anything about COVID-19 guidelines for the shuttles or the venues.

Participating venues pay $30 to $50 a month to be part of the Loop and get their shows featured in Out & About and various websites, including Art Loop Wilmington.
