Key West is an island located at the end of the Florida Keys, a chain of small, coral islands off the southern tip of Florida. The Island of Key West is around 4 miles long and 1 mile wide with a total land area of 4.2 square miles and is the southernmost point of the continental United States. The works in this exhibition demonstrate the variety of media that has been employed by artists to capture the events and scenes found throughout Key West. From the 19th century to today, artists find the subjects that surround them in Key West are a potent stimulus for art, as capturing everyday life is as significant as portraying historical and political events.
