Sidewalk Poetry in Key West, FL

The Sidewalk Poetry project was created by the Key West Art in Public Places (AIPP) Board in 2012. With the goal of the project to spread appreciation for the Arts through the installation of winning poems on sidewalks throughout the City of Key West.

Over 200 entries were received, and the jury chose 17 winners – the majority of which were Key West residents. The poems were officially completed by Key West Artist Craig Berube-Gray in 2015.
