Art Events in Key West Tonight

Here at Parrot Key Hotel & Resort we have a passion for art. Which is why we’re especially excited for all the exciting openings and events happening tonight in Key West! Art lovers will have plenty to choose from today, as a number of exhibitions open to the public for the first time. (A little party here and there doesn’t hurt, either.)

First off, The Custom House Museum will open two new exhibits tonight with a party open to the public  from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Come mix & mingle as two fabulous exhibits– “Celebrating the Colors of Key West,” the art of Jack Baron, and “Coping with Depression —the WPA Artists in Key West”– are opened to the public. While both shows will stay open through November, tonight is your first chance to catch a glimpse of these beautiful and important works.

In addition,  the Key West Art Center presents “Martha Watson Sauer: WPA Teaching Artist,” opening tonight in conjunction with the WPA exhibit at the Custom House Museum, located a quick walk away.

Also in the area, the Key West Aquarium (which many don’t know was a WPA project completed in 1934 and which contains fascinating frescoes) will stay open until 7 p.m. with free admission to those attending either of the above receptions.

Finally, tonight’s “Art Walk On White” will have galleries along White St. open to the public for wine, appetizers and a dazzling array of new works by artists at the Studios of Key West, Harrison Gallery, and more. Take a walk down White St. and see what you can find!

With so many fun events to consider, tonight’s bound to offer something for everyone. So what are you waiting for?
