Art in Public Places Board

About the Board

The Key West Art in Public Places Board was created in 2000 to help create new beautiful works of art for our Residents and Visitors to enjoy in various public locations around our island.  Since its founding, the Key West Art in Public Places Board has supervised the creation of numerous works of art around the City.  Some of these include:

  • A ceramic fountain by the late Jay Gogin at the Police Station, located at 1604 North Roosevelt Boulevard.
  • The floor design of the Mary and John Spottswood Waterfront Park by JT Thompson
  • Murals by Wally McGregor adorn the planters at the AIDS Memorial at the Edward P. Knight Pier (formally known as White Street Pier).
