Florida Keys or Bust! A History of Tourism
May 2014-September 2014
The Florida Keys have historically been an alluring travel destination for travelers around the world. With the onset of the Great Depression in the 1930s, tourism in Key West was the lynchpin in warding off bankruptcy. This exhibit will explore the history of tourism in the Florida Keys from the 1920s until the 1980s while focusing specifically on transportation, accommodation, travel brochures and postcards.

For over a decade, Will Fernandez has been one of Key West’s most enchanting artists. He paints and sculpts almost entirely from memory and makes his works quite humorous and whimsical. In this exhibition, he will display a number of his impressionistic-style paintings, as well as a selection of his distinctive sculptures in stone, wood, clay and more.
