  • The Florida Keys Council of the Arts works to support all the arts, in all the Keys, all the time. The local arts agency is launching its seventh annual Connections Project Keyswide road show with a grand opening reception at the Murray Nelson Government & Cultural Center in Key Largo from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. featuring a vibrant 24-foot mosaic mural created by local artists and art lovers. The reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres is open to the public. After connecting with the art, patrons can also collect art by making a $50 donation for one canvas or a $125 donation for three at any reception or online. Once the road show has ended, donors receive a randomly selected piece of the mosaic in the mail. Each work includes an artist statement providing insight into the origin of the work and the artist’s thoughts and inspiration. Proceeds from the Connections Project directly benefit Keys artists and arts organizations.
