One of Cuba’s leading figures since bursting onto the scene as a young sculptor in the early 1990s, Esterio Segura is an artist and community organizer of volcanic talent and seismic impact, known for his sharp critiques of Cuban politics and society. Among many international commissions is his installation at Tampa International Airport of a flotilla of cherry red airplanes, with hearts for fuselages, symbolizing the Cuban diaspora that began with the Peter Pan children airlifted to the US in the early 1960s.

With almost a quarter century of “artists helping artists” behind them, the McKee Fund’s annual auction is where aficionados bid on contemporary and classic works to raise proceeds which help fund the vital grant program for Keys artists.
Caldwell’s mostly abstract, mixed media paintings capture the exuberance of an island bursting with color: the endless shades of green foliage, the magnificent variety of flowers, the amazing aqua-teal-turquoise water, the billowing clouds highlighted peach-pink with the last rays of sun, followed by the blue-purple-indigo of nightfall. They are made of layers of water-based paint, graphite, markers and scraps of paper, which add texture and evoke the feeling of experiences and relationships that are built over time.

Necklace designer Maxine Makover and photographer Michael Philip explore and amplify the many stories jewelry tells.
Jewelry is a universally integrated form of artwork, reflecting individual details of a person’s personality, while hinting at broader cultural implications. Makover taps into this potential with her creative wearable art, while Philip’s classical contemporary photography captures the life themes portrayed by the wearer.
