Lauren P. McAloon

Key West artist Lauren McAloon continues to awe viewers with her site-specific sculptures that she installs in Fort Zachary Taylor. Her pieces relate to the specific history of this pre-civil war era fort. She writes, “I am fascinated by 19th century technology. Firing cannonballs, like skipping stones, across the waves for distances of up to three miles, hitting their targets—ships vulnerable waterline.”
