2022 Connections Project - Celebrating 10 Years!
Click HERE to sign up for a Free Canvas!

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. See schedule below. 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. See reception and exhibition dates coming soon and will be listed below.

For a $50 or $125 donation you can join the Connections Project and receive one (or three) of this year’s completed masterpieces to start or add to your own collection. In May, we will disassemble the mosaic and by random selection each canvas is delivered to you or a recipient as a gift. Your contribution supports our Grants Program for Artists.
