The MOMO Key West Murals

Public Art in Private Spaces

In early December, New York-based street artist MOMO arrived on the island and began a six week residency at The Studios of Key West. His mission, plain and simple, was to find ten diverse living spaces and private homes and complete a new mural in each one.

The artist calls this project “Public Art in Private Spaces” and he recently reached the half-way point. Below are a few images of his latest Key West interior sites: home of Diane Savicky, TSKW Member and Volunteer Guardian; the Flagler Avenue home of Carol Schreck; bedroom of 16-year old Kieran, with newly made MOMO mural; and the latest almost-public houseboat design at Garrison Bight.

“To me, this is one of the defining projects of the 2009/2010 season,” said Eric Holowacz, Executive director of TSKW. “MOMO comes to Key West as a visiting artist, bringing with him an ultra-creative idea and a sense of community engagement, and then our organization plays midwife and engineer for what he wants to do. And like a lot of things we do at TSKW, it manages to leave behind a creative gift.”
