TSKW is Building for the Future
CHANGE IS GOOD. As a relative newcomer to the Key West arts scene, we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished. The truth is, however, we’re not done yet, and in order to achieve our vision – not just to raise the bar for the arts in Key West, but to sustain that work for generations – we need more than our beloved Armory is able to provide. TSKW has found a new home at 533 Eaton Street that’s sturdy, spacious and suffused with light, providing both a solid foundation and room to grow, create and inspire audiences for many years.
Of course, there are financial benefits to the move as well. By purchasing 533 Eaton Street, we reduce our facilities costs by almost 20%, eliminate the challenges and risk of a frail wooden structure, and build equity in a building we own. The Armory will always be where The Studios sprouted, but Eaton Street is a place we can put down roots.
The Ashe Street cottages, Mango Tree House, and wonderful Sculpture and Nature Garden will continue to anchor our Artists In Residence Program, provide a setting for outdoor events, and serve as an oasis of native plants and stunning artwork.
