Kinetic Tiger and Artist’s Kin to Lead Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade.

Kinetic Tiger and Artist’s Kin to Lead Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade—Some Tigers pounce, some (like Tigger) bounce, and one is soon to roll as Grand Marshal of the Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade. Monroe County School District IT Director Joy Nulisch has been selected as a “Papio Ambassador,” a title accompanied by cash support to aid in crafting her concept – a Glynn Archer Tiger look-alike kinetic sculpture float. The soon-to-be kinetic cat, which Nulisch is building along with a couple of friends, is a tribute to her “Pops,” the renowned late artist and sculptor George Carey, who with his Key West High School welding class, built the original Panthera tigris that stands guard today in front of Key West City Hall at the corner of White and United Streets. For more information on the parade and how to participate, visit papiokineticparade.com.
