“The Connections Project: A Mosaic of the Keys” is a large-scale mural created each year out of nearly 400 individual 6-inch-square canvases painted or adorned by local artists and arts supporters. The 2020 mural normally travels the Keys for public viewing, but in response to the coronavirus situations and the CDC's precautions against large group gatherings, in lieu of normally planned receptions through the Keys, the mural will remain on display at Marathon’s Shady Palm Art Gallery, 2888 Overseas Highway, until further notice.
As part of the Into the Stars headlining tour, the New Orleans-based, eight-piece American rock band The Revivalists are to perform at Coffee Butler Key West Amphitheater at Truman Waterfront Park, 35 East Quay Rd. The soulful alt-rock anthems on their latest album translate into a live powerhouse of a performance, complete with soaring pedal steel guitar, pounding percussion, irresistible horns and topped off with charismatic front man David Shaw’s undeniable voice. Special guests include Stephen Marley and PJ Morton. Doors open 5:30 p.m., show starts 7 p.m.
Presented by Lazy Dog Adventures, the challenge includes a 12-mile Elite Race around the island and a 4-mile open race. Other events include a kick-off registration party, paddleboard clinics and races for kids.
