Two Islands – One Week – Be a Part of History!

Presented by Havana Air and Sponsored in part by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council

 

Florida’s southernmost key may be small, but it has a mighty reputation.

Balmy, wild nights and salty seas attract tourists by the thousands each year, but it was Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams that started our romance with Key West. Discover why artists and free spirits come to Key West and never leave.

Be a Part of History!  Join us as we explore Havana, a city rich in history with a future open to endless possibilities.

Cuba is an increasingly popular destination for LGBT Americans, and only 60 lucky guests will have the opportunity to take part in this groundbreaking event.  Much like Key West, Havana boasts acclaimed architecture, vivacious nightlife, and robust artistic communities preserving and evolving the island’s culture.  
Our partners: DMC of Miami and Havana Air will take you there!

Michel Mirabal

This commemorative poster for the Key West to Cuba Festival will be for sale both online and in-person at the Gallery on the Greene on September 8th.

Michel Mirabal will be flying in from Havana to exhibit his beautiful work at theThe Studios of Key West September 8th from 3p-5p then on Gallery on the Greene, Key West from 6p-8p.

Born in the “barrio” of Havana, Cuba, Michel Mirabal has established himself an iconic -sought after international artist. Pieces from his successful series on Cuban flags can be found touring The Vatican, Art Basel and in the private collections of Usher, Marc Anthony, Carlos Santana, Gabriel García Márquez, Danny Glover, Quincy Jones, & Muhammad Ali.

Michel considers himself a ‘social artist’ staying out of the politics and remaining true to his passion since he was a boy, creating art for enjoyment. His grandmother, Marta Jean-Claude, a great Haitian singer, Mirabal inherited her love of music, and when he paints he thinks “that at that moment I am an actor, and I am on a film set, but acting out my real life…” and what a life he has created for himself.
