Art Museum · Hidden Gem · Theater
In January 2015, The Studios of Key West is planning an exciting move to our recently purchased and newly renovated home, the former Scottish Rite Masonic Center at the corner of Simonton and Eaton Streets. Built in 1951, it’s spacious, sturdy and suffused with light – an iconic piece of Miami Deco architecture located in the heart of downtown Key West, just one block from Duval Street.

The new facility includes a 200 seat professional theater, the island’s largest gallery devoted to contemporary art, nine studios for practicing artists, and two dedicated classrooms, including a cutting edge digital media lab.

With dedicated creative spaces for exhibitions, performances, instruction and art making, our new facilities offer a cultural platform that lives up to Key West’s creative potential.

  • I was lucky enough to have a residency at The Studios Key West back in 2015 and to date it's still my favourite residency of all the residencies that I've done. Having the space and time to write in such a beautiful and inspiring place was invaluable. The staff were warm and incredibly supportive but also knew how to give artists space to get their work done. I definitely left a little bit of my heart behind there! Can't recommend The Studios highly enough.
  • My Residency at the Studios of Key West was an extremely rewarding experience in many ways. I got so much work done in a most nurturing atmosphere. The staff was helpful in many ways and took care of all of my needs while there. I would recommend the Studios for any serious artist who would benefit by being in creative atmosphere. Key West was that place for me. I would love to return. Vincent Pomilio
