“Islands in the (Gulf) Stream” Exhibit at Key West Art and Historical Society!
16 years ago, photographer Rob O’Neal took his first trip from Key West to Cuba. Since then, he’s returned numerous times to capture, on film, the people and places of Key West’s island neighbor. His exhibit, “Islands in the (Gulf) Stream,” features 30 images from Cuba and Key West that show the many similarities – and differences – shared between the two places. The exhibit runs through April 19 at the Custom House Museum.
The Key West Art and Historical Society strives to celebrate the culture of the Florida Keys, through exhibitions of regional art, architecture, and historical collections. The KWAHS features temporary exhibits along with permanent fixtures, tours and educational programs for all ages. For more information, visit www.kwahs.org.
