Sculpture Key West Spices up the Island With Amazing Outdoor Art

Sculpture Key West is a unique (and free) Key West art exhibition that places selected artworks in the community for your enjoyment. Sculpture Key West believes that art isn’t something we should have to make plans to see, or buy a ticket to visit. Instead, they believe that art belongs in our everyday environment where we can bump into it, where it can unexpectedly alter our day and our world. Artists from eight states are represented in the exhibition and their works are showcased in a wide variety of traditional and experimental media. Some sculptures were constructed on site, while some incorporate native materials such as local plant life. The exhibit is available for viewing through March 23, 2014 at West Martello Tower and adjoining Higgs Beach in Key West.

Artist John Martini’s sculpture art can be seen around Parrot Key Resort and some of his works are also part of the Sculpture Key West exhibit. Scroll down to see some of Martini’s work, along with other amazing art sculptures. View the Sculpture Key West Facebook Page
