Putting a spin on it: Self-described “creative misfits” (left to right) Rene Hatalovsky, Kelly Perkins, Dee Dee Green, Alison Higgins, Gabriel Price and Jacqueline Luhta (not shown) are one of several artists/artist groups selected as “Papio Ambassadors” for the Second Annual Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade, a mobile sculpture and art-bike processional that will roll through downtown Key West on Saturday, May 6, powered by the creativity and whimsy of artists and assemblers of all ages. To achieve their planned creation, this team is in full-tilt scavenging mode – even copping a plethora of paints from the free monthly Hazardous Waste drop-off bin.
The Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade was created in honor of the Florida Keys rebel folk artist Stanely Papio and is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of the Arts and Culture, and the State of Florida. Additional support provided by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, Historic Tours of America, Margaritaville Key West Resort & Marina and Southernmost Beach Café. Your Museums. Your Community. It takes an Island.
