Each year during the middle of January there is much hustle and bustle down at the park on the beach. Why? Because sculptor's from around the world bring a piece of their art to our tiny island and install it near the beach for a month. This great event is called "Sculpture Key West". Some of these installations are enormous and are made from many materials such as metal, fiberglass, cloth and even stone. Creativity and imagination of these artists always amazes me. Also, besides being at the beach, artists are installing some of their creations throughout the town of Key West. I was on a bike ride today and noticed a monster of some sorts being installed in the pond in front of the police department and their was "heavy equipment" installing some type of metal piece in the Garden Club area. I am looking forward to the event which starts soon.
Just to give you an idea of "Sculpture Key West", here are a couple of photos from last year. I surely will have photos for you this year when the event is complete.
This is a "very big bird" made of metal.
Check out these "guard dogs"!

Head in the sand!
I have been working, mostly painting woodwork, around the house this week getting ready for the gang from up north to arrive in February so not much cooking going on here. Hope you enjoyed a few photos from "Sculpture Key West" and I look forward to showing you more of this year's show.
More food and wine in the near future!!!!
