Join Us for the Arts Council’s annual Connections Project. Our Mosaic of the Keys provides 400 free 6 x 6 inch blank canvases for Monroe County artists and community members to create their own unique piece of art. We offer free workshops throughout the Keys to assist those that may need guidance and materials.
We then collect, assemble and exhibit the 400 canvases as one large mosaic. We will travel to seven Keys’ locations and celebrate at each venue with an opening reception. Follow the links below to see schedules.
In May, we will disassemble the mosaic and each canvas is shipped to our eagerly awaiting collectors. For a $50 or $125 donation you too can join the Connections Project and receive one or three of these masterpieces to start or add to your own collection.
