Wyland in Key West

It's difficult to miss the artist Wyland in Key West as he has at least 2 large, dedicated art galleries (shops?) for his output, as well as very keen sales staff!

If you want to experience Wyland for free, his very large mural 'The Living Reef' can be seen half a block away from Key West harbor.  It was originally painted as part of the Whaling Wall series of 100 (this is number 52) in September 1993.  It was re-touched by him recently, in October 2012.  It was looking very faded after 19 years and the re-touch has made it look much better.

You can see it at the old Waterfront Market, at Caroline and William Streets.
