Distinguished Speaker Series

Key West Ghost Stories ‘They Only Follow Us at Night’ with Wayne Garcia

May 10, 2024 | 6:00pm-7:00pm

Join us for an evening of storytelling with Key West native and folk artist Wayne Garcia themed ‘They Only Follow Us At Night’. He will delight the audience with tales of Old Key West, his memories from growing up, and many of the island’s most infamous characters. His stories will be accompanied by his colorful wood carvings and vintage photographs depicting Key West’s incredible past.

About the Presenter:

Wayne Garcia is a 3rd generation Cuban American. He learned the techniques of carving on wood from watching legendary folk artists Mario Sanchez & Papito Suarez. Wayne’s delightful accounts of Key West’s past should not be missed. He literally and figuratively paints a picture of an island paradise rich in community and culture, validating all of the reasons why many of us have chosen Key West as our home.

Funding for this program was sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support from Aloys & Carol Metty and The John & Marilyn Rintamaki Family Charitable Fund.
