January 24, 2020 – (Key West, FL). Key West Art & Historical Society announces new board director Emma Starr

The Key West Art & Historical Society, one of the region’s oldest cultural organizations that educates the local community and visiting public by preserving, interpreting and exhibiting the art, architecture, and history of the Florida Keys through exhibitions and educational offerings at four stewarded museums, announces the appointment of Emma Starr to their growing board of directors.

The analogue photographer, web designer, yoga instructor and part time employee at The Studios of Key West brings her creative thinking to the table as well as her skillset with constructive group discussions “that work toward a greater goal, especially ones that serve the community and bring growth.”

“Key West Art & Historical Society reflects my love of the arts, design, and architecture, including the preservation of these important cultural worlds,” she says. “Their culturally rich exhibitions are regionally informative and educational. This giving to others through the arts resonates with me on a core level.”

Starr joins Board President Enid Torregrosa, First Vice President Todd Feit, Second Vice President John O’Leary, Treasurer Jay Hall, Secretary Sam Kaufman, and Directors Brewster Chamberlin, Ben Harrison, Michael Shields, Sharon Wells, John Paul Castro, and Donna Bosold in their efforts to preserve and present Florida Keys Arts & History in engaging ways to the varying age groups of the community and visiting public.

Those interested in supporting the Society’s year-round exhibitions and educational programming through volunteering or membership should contact Kim Livingston, Membership Director, at 305-295-6616 ext 106.  Your museums. Your community. It takes an island.
