The mild February weather is the perfect time for discovering some the area's best local and regional artists. Scores of art lovers wander among the displays located along Whitehead Street (closed for the event), searching for the next piece to add to their collection. Key West has a reputation as a haven for artists, and this festival certainly seems to prove it to be true. A wide array artistic styles are represented in an equally diverse variety of media. Admission is free, but bring your wallet anyway. You will not want to go home empty-handed.
