Arts Council presents The Connections Project Closing Reception at the Gato Building April 20th

The Florida Keys Council of the Arts works to support all the arts, in all the Keys, all the time. The local arts agency launched its eleventh annual Connections Project Road in Key Largo a few months ago and it has arrived in Key West at the spacious lobby at the Gato Building. The reception is Thursday, April 20th from 5:00-7:00 pm. The community is invited to visit the vibrant 24-foot mosaic mural created by local artists and art lovers.

After connecting with the art, patrons can also collect art by making a $60 donation for one canvas or a $160 donation for three at the reception or online at Once the show has ended, donors receive a randomly selected piece of the mosaic in the mail. Each work includes an artist statement providing insight into the origin of the work and the artist’s thoughts and inspiration.

Proceeds from Connections Project directly benefit Keys’ artists and arts organizations through Arts Council grants. The reception is open to the public. Free parking is available at the Gato Building located at 1100 Simonton Street, so please join us. Refreshments generously sponsored by First Horizon Bank. The Connections Project is grateful for the continued sponsorship of Royal Furniture.
