I’ve seen some sculpture around town, is Sculpture Key West responsible for this?
Yes, we are placing some sculptures around town as part of our Community Art Program.

I know an artist (or I am an artist) who would like to participate in a future exhibition, how do I apply? 
Please read the information for artists available on this website.  Email us or call to get your name on our mailing list and you will be contacted when the next application is available, generally in July for the following year’s show.

How many of these artists are local?
Local support and participation is high, but varies from year to year depending on the works selected by the jury.  The jury panel does not take into consideration WHERE an artist lives, so all artists have an equal chance to participate.

Where can I see more local art?
Many places, including Lucky Street Gallery , Harrison Gallery, The Studios of Key West.
