Art in the Garden
The 2023 Key West Art in the Garden exhibit is open at the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden. This year we showcase large outdoor pieces from local artists. Each piece is crafted from recycled materials and fits into the natural beauty and backdrop of the forest. This special exhibit runs through July 31, 2023. It is funded by the Gardens Hotel, Parrot Key Hotel & Villas, Tavern n Town and the Tourist Development Council.
Art in the Garden committee members are: Jackie Sanchez and Susann D’Antonio. Art pieces are for sale direct from the artists.
Where art combines with nature: 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 bringing renewal and the return of ART in the GARDEN with artistic expressions emphasizing harmony with nature.
Sculpture creations by local artists are on display from April through July. The public is welcome daily from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Visitors to the Garden will have an opportunity to cast their votes for Best in Show.
Admission: Free to members. General admission applies to non-members. Pricing details can be found here.
