Conch Culture & the Arts

Key West exemplifies living art in its mixed textures of life and people. No wonder poets, novelists, playwrights, painters, dancers and musicians collect here like morning dew on grass.

On a fellow poet's tip, Ernest Hemingway made his way here in the 1920s. Robert Frost followed. The end of World War II brought Tennessee Williams. Here he wrote "A Streetcar Named Desire." From John Audubon to Jimmy Buffett, the theatres and galleries and bookshops of this small island have fed the heart and soul of art at its finest for close to a century.
