Rick Worth: Painting In Paradise: A 25-Year Retrospective

On June 17, the community poured into the historic Armory hall by the hundreds to experience the magical environment created within it. Vehicles, theatre props, novelties and paintings (many never before seen publicly on loan from private collections). From candybars- his “sweet little ones”- to major murals filled the room forming a chronological tour of the last quarter century in Key West. From a pontoon boat to a parade of painted art cars, the exterior of the armory welcomed locals and visitors into the show with the fantasy fanfare Key West is known for. As one patron commented, “when do you get to walk through a six foot mouth with fangs?”
