While Key Largo is justifiably renowned as the dive capital of the world, the best-kept secret on the first island of the Florida Keys is its thriving arts and entertainment community.
Artists create gorgeous memories of the Keys in every medium for display in local galleries. Potters fashion unusual glazes that evoke the incredible hues of backcountry and offshore waters, and add them to the shapes of shells, platters adorned with fish and much more.
Fine-art, portrait and underwater photographers are among the best in the world at capturing the very essence of Key Largo and the Florida Keys. See how they've captured the awe-inspiring beauty of Everglades National Park, the aquatic wonders of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, our outstanding artificial and natural coral reefs, our amazing sunsets and the abundant, irreplaceable flora found in the continent's last remaining stand of tropical hardwood hammock.
Jewelers design unique bracelets, earrings, charms, pendants and necklaces that have a nautical flair. Anglers can immortalize their most memorable catches with eye-catching jewelry that will last for many years to come.
When it comes to performing artists, we've got them all! From concert associations offering free musical happenings to community and professional theater groups to dance companies, our performers will keep you spell-bound...or laughing at their comedic antics.
So when you find yourself looking for a relaxing, intriguing alternative to a day enjoying nature, consider any of these fine arts and entertainment opportunities.
