Art in the Garden logo


The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden opens its 10th Annual ART in the GARDEN displays on June 1.

Meander over Garden boardwalks and down pathways through dappled shade cast by fresh greenscape, colorful blossoms and winged creatures of nature and spot … sculpture! Nature has been benign in recent months with spring rains bringing renewal and the return of  ART in the GARDEN with artistic expressions emphasizing harmony with nature. These works feature earth-friendly themes, including recycled and natural materials. Sculptures by local artists accent the natural beauty of the conservation site on Stock Island.

Social distancing protocols remain in place and there are no public restrooms.
