ART! Key West at TSKW
All events at TSKW are free and open to the public
ART! Key West!™
TSKW is a proud partner of ART! Key West!™, a three day, island-wide festival focused in downtown Key West that celebrates the wealth of art and artists our island has to offer. Here at The Armory, we’ll host live mural painting in the Sculpture and Nature Garden, including an interactive panel for the junior set, plus throw open our doors for open studios, inviting one and all to check out the works and creative spaces of our fabulous in-house artists.
TSKW Open Gallery Hours: 10am-5pm
-Check out our current exhibition, Conch A Doodle! (see tskw.org for details)
Mural Painting: 12-8pm (Sculpture and Nature Garden)
-Come to the Garden to see a work in progress. Over the course of the day, 2 muralists will transform a blank space into a stunning complete 16 foot painting—a most impressive “before and after”.
Kids Mural Painting: 1-4pm (Sculpture and Nature Garden)
-We haven’t forgotten our junior artists! Kids of all ages will have the opportunity to work on their very own mural. With the help of Artist Maggie Ruley, kids will depict their homes and dream homes, to build a complete village. Drop by any time between 1-4pm; stay for a sketch or stay for a masterpiece!
TSKW Open Studios: 5-7pm (Armory, second floor)
-We’re pulling back the curtain on our upstairs artists. Take a peek into the creative process—and possibly find the perfect handmade holiday gift while you’re at it!
Fringe Theatre: Cock rehearsal 5-7pm (Main Hall)
-Fringe Theatre is hard at work rehearsing their upcoming production, Cock (opens Dec. 4th). Stop by the Main Hall at any point between 5-7pm to watch a scene from the play and see what goes into staging a unique work of art in a truly atypical space.
Mural Finale Celebration: 7-8pm (Sculpture and Nature Garden)
-You saw it take shape over the day, now come back to celebrate the final brushstrokes!
