"Last year in March The Studios of Key West brought to town three Viennese musicians for a concert that was music of the highest quality I've ever heard hear. This year they did it again." - Harry Schroeder, Solares Hill, March 10, 2013
The Annual TSKW Patron event was especially wonderful this year as those in attendance had the great pleasure of meeting the artist and getting a sneak peek of The Sinking World of Andreas Franke: The Vandenberg Project, before it went on view for the public the next evening.
Thanks to Vicki Roush and Larry Baeder for their amazing performance at this sold out show!
The Sculpture and Nature Garden at TSKW is dedicated to native Key West and Caribbean plant life, and was planted with the intention of restoring to the island some of the Keys’ most unique plant species.

Thanks also to the whole TSKW community...the artists, instructors, students, staff and board... the people who truly are The Studios of Key West.
