Beginning Monday, November 12th, the free Duval Loop will be expanding its route. The continuous Loop will make it easier to reach Mallory Square and the Truman Waterfront Park, as well as White Street.
The free bus runs daily from 6 a.m. until midnight. It begins at the Park N Ride on Caroline Street to Simonton, runs down to Front Street for easy access to the waterfront area. The route continues up Simonton, then turns into the beautiful new Truman Waterfront Park. From there, the expanded Loop runs back out down to Fleming, then clear on out to White Street before circling back to the Park N Ride.
This expansion provides better access to more of downtown Key West. So leave the car, and enjoy the free Duval Loop!

"A Look Back at the 60's & 70's Through Photographs" from Groovy History
Many Readers have commented that they are really enjoying this Multi-Part Feature ; here are the Links to the First 11 Parts....
Part 1 was in the Sept 3 Issue ; Here is the Link   
Part 2 (  ) was in the Sept 10 Issue . Part 3 was in the Sept 17 Issue
 Part 4 was in Sept. 24
Part 5 Oct. 1
Part 6 Oct 8th
Part 7 Oct. 15
Part 8 Oct. 22 Pt. 1  
Part 9 Oct. 22 Pt. 2
Part 10  OCT 29 2018 
Part 11 Nov. 5th
Part 12 Nov. 12  
Pictured here are a man and woman taking center stage on the dance floor at the disco club 2001 Odyssey in Brooklyn, New York, back in 1979. By the determined looks on their faces, they are about to take home the gold in this dance-off.  The couple behind them don't seem nearly as into it. 
One of the more memorable publicity stunts pulled at Studio 54 during a party, was when Bianca Jagger (wife to Mick Jagger) rode into the club on a white horse... and then partied until dawn of course. This grand entrance was organized by the clubs event planners in honor of Bianca's 30th birthday celebration back in 1977. 
Pictured here is the Jamaican model, actress, singer, and Bond Girl, Grace Jones. Jones was one of the many glamorous celebrities who went club hopping in New York City on a regular basis and she could most often be seen at Studio 54. She would strut her stuff through the club wearing out-there clothing and makeup to match. Not that she was alone in her efforts to stand out, just about everyone there was dressed to impress (or confuse).  
Here we have Tina Turner looking fabulous as usual, in a dress studded to perfection on the Studio 54 dance floor. Studio 54 was notorious for its endless stream of celebrities and debauchery on a nightly basis. They were extremely picky at the door; openly and shamelessly excluding everyone from the establishment who wasn't beautiful, chic, ridiculously famous, or having some sort of unique quality to add to the ambiance somehow.
Pictured here is the iconic David Bowie sitting alongside Dutch actor and singer Romy Haag. They're having a smoke at the Alcazar nightclub in Paris back in 1976. Romy Haag is a former lover and muse of Bowies, she's also one of the most famous transgender women in Europe.

We Continue with Part 12 of Groovy History's "A Look Back at the 60's & 70's in Photographs"
Pictured here on the left is a woman dancing between two men at Studio 54, 1979. The photo on the right was captured in 1977, also at Studio 54.  The rich, the famous, the infamously insane... drugs, booze, scantily dressed men and women of loose morals all resided behind those velvet ropes. An aura of exclusivity, an atmosphere that promoted sexual freedom, and open drug use made Studio 54 the biggest nightclub in the world.

Despite all the debauchery that occurred at disco clubs, they were still a popular choice for date nights. Pictured here are Mick and Bianca Jagger enjoying a night out at Studio 54 together. 
Many famous couples chose this legendary hot spot for date nights including Jack Haley Jr. and wife Liza Minnelli, Keith Richards and his wife Patti Hanson, as well as now United States President Donald Trump with Ivana Trump on his arm. Later Mick Jagger would return with his next future wife, model Jerri Hall. 
Pictured here on the left is the Queen of Disco herself, Donna Summer performing on stage in an elaborate, feathered costume, circa 1976. Over on the right, is a woman dancing in what can only be described as pure ecstasy at a disco in New York City, 1976.
Described by  Rolling Stone Magazine  as an "unprecedented mix of glamorous sophistication and primal hedonism," Studio 54 reigned supreme in the nightclub scene until 33-months of tax evasion caught up to its owners and its doors were closed. A final party that doubled as a prison send-off for club owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, was held in February 1980.
This outrageous couple is tearing up the dance floor over at the disco club known as FunHouse, in New York City. This photo was taken back in 1978. You'd thing dance moves like this might summon an audience, but as can be seen by all feet turned away from them, spectacles like this were just a common occurrence

Learn the art of pinhole photography in Key West Art & Historical Society workshop led by Jodell Roberts 
A photo made from a pinhole in a coffee can? Photographer Jodell Roberts will show you how in this Key West Art & Historical Society pinhole photography workshop at Fort East Martello, 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd. "The Lenseless Eye" will offer participants a new means of creative expression and image-making through one of photography's oldest methods during this workshop that takes place over two consecutive weekends: Fridays, November 30 and December 7 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm; Saturdays and Sundays December 1, 2, 8, and 9 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  
"This workshop is an opportunity to experience and explore a different photographic medium, technique and vision. Pinhole photography with film (paper) is a hands-on, self-determining approach to making photographic art," says Roberts. "Being actively involved in every aspect of the photographic process empowers the creator and imbues the work with the essence of the artist."
Register now for this limited-enrollment workshop. Cost for the workshop is $150 for Society members and $165 for nonmembers. For more information and to register, visit, click 'tickets,' or call Adele Williams at 305-295-6616, extension 115.  Your museums.  Your community.  It takes an island.

How are we grappling with climate change on individual and collective levels in a place we are actively still creating? Portable Memories in Rising Seas is an ongoing participatory project about sea level rise that connects lived experience with memory and climate change. Uncertainties of climate change are a threat and, at the same time, a catalyst for expression, action, and a renewed sense of belonging. Sponsored by Helen / Ben Harrison Gallery

When we meet someone, we create somebody that doesn't really exist. As we get to know them, our fantasy is challenged and inevitably, that image disappears.

Here we have Divine, Grace Jones, and a group of their friends all celebrating Jones' birthday at club Xenon back in 1978. Xenon was regarded as having much more of a "Fashion Crowd" than Studio 54 which was more about Hollywood glam. But both clubs attracted the same A-listers on any given night. 
Live music performances did happen but DJ's really did reign supreme in the New York Disco club scene. Pictured here on the left is a disco DJ smoking and spinning a record at a club in New York City, 1979. Over on the right is a glittering man in a leather thong dancing at Electric Circus in New York City, also in 1979.
When people talk about how popular Studio 54 was, they were in no way exaggerating. Getting in was on many people's bucket list. As you can see, 1979 had no time for broken legs, it was all about getting out and shaking your groove thang on the dance floor. Studio 54 was literally the place where "anything goes." Just slather those casts in glue and toss some glitter on it!
Pictured here is a man performing with fire at the disco club Infinity in New York City, 1979. While most of the crowd looks thrilled, this half dressed spectator seems unimpressed. Aggressively standing in his tighty whities, he looks as if he may soon bust out some Mortal Kombat moves right there on the dance floor. 
Not everyone who went out to disco clubs wanted to boogie, some just went to sit on the sidelines and watch all the marvels around them, like this group at a club in New York City, circa 1978. Although... they also look like they may be there to hold a seance. After all, anything goes at the disco, right? 
Just because the many Disco club attendees went out of their way to throw together outlandish outfits, doesn't mean those wardrobe choices were glamorous by any means. Sometimes they were just... weird.

Season Opening Group Show Reception Last Friday at the Frangipani Gallery. Exhibition will hang at least until the end of November.

Every year Frangipani is pleased to welcome the season with a group show by all the Frangipani artists.  Come see what they've been up to this summer at this Group Show. 1102 Duval, Key West.  Show runs through November. Deb Moore is working on a series of "Old Key West."  Lainie Davia has a monster silver cuff that needs to be seen and tried on for dramatic effect and David Meier always has something fun up his sleeve.  Sue D'Antonio has new heart art, not for wearing on your sleeve. Fran Decker has plenty of new paintings including a fun Parrotfish Parade.  

The Nov. 26th. Issue will have many photos from this Exhibition

Headshots by Susann D'Antonio Friday December 7 at Frangipani Gallery

New work by Susann D'Antonio will be presented at Frangipani Gallery's opening exhibit on December 7th during the First Friday Upper Duval Art Walk.  This show is strictly for the birds as it is a collection of encaustic mixed media paintings portraying all types of common and exotic birds.  The paintings spotlight the bird's head only, suggesting an actor's photo portfolio.  Local favorite, the rooster, is center stage with other locals in the wings, the ibis, heron, pelican.  Other members of the cast have walk on parts, the peacock, parrots, the magnificent frigate.  Stage left are a supporting cast of fat little chick sculptures as the stand ins for the  main cast.  Join us for this fun birds-eye view and perhaps one of the birds will fly the coop with you. The curtain call for the show will be the end of December.

There has been a dramatic drop in the number motorcycle and scooter crashes in Key West this year, thanks to increased enforcement and education efforts funded by a grant by the Florida Department of Transportation.
As of the end of October, there was a 64 percent drop in the number of motorcycle and scooter crashes when compared to the average number for each of the three previous years. In 2018, there have been 103 crashes. The prior three years have averaged 303 crashes annually.
The number of motorcycle and scooter crashes with injuries also dropped by a whopping 67 percent with 67 so far in 2018. The average number for the previous three years was 207.
The FDOT grant allowed the Key West Police Department to dedicate officers to educating riders and enforcing motorcycle and scooter laws. In addition, as an important part of educating operators, officer visited local scooter rental businesses and spoke to the employees about Florida laws.
There are still two months left in the calendar year, so the percentages could change but, overall, the dedicated effort is sure to have prevented a number of crashes.
