The famed gardens of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment included the art masterworks as counterpoint to the natural beauty of the botanical realm. Each year, the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden on Stock Island emulates those storied sites by adding sculptural works by local artist. But while the classical gardens are usually statements about the power of humankind over nature, “Art in the Garden” emphasizes harmony with nature. Works are earth-friendly in the selection of materials (including recycled and natural “debris”) and themes.

ART in the GARDEN returns to the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden with an opening reception May 3rd, 4-6pm. Sculptures by local artists accent the natural attractions of the conservation site on Stock Island through July, seven days a week, 10am-4pm.

The KW Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is located on College Road near the light on U.S. 1 just over Cow Key Bridge on Stock Island. Call 305-296-1504 for directions and details.
