[/av_textblock] [av_iconlist position=’left’] [av_iconlist_item title=’CREATIVITY’ link=” linktarget=’no’ icon=’49’] Key West enjoys a rich tradition of inspiring residents and visitors alike to approach everything they do with a free and unbridled spirit. We celebrate all things creative as the highest expression of the human soul.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’DIVERSITY’ link=” linktarget=’no’ icon=’25’] The strength of our community lies in the collection of a wide range of backgrounds, aesthetics, technical skills, and artistic sensibilities. We are at our best only when our differences are welcomed and proudly on display.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’SUSTAINABILITY’ link=” linktarget=’no’ icon=’50’] The quality of what we get out of tomorrow is determined in large part by what we put into today. We believe that a focus on fostering strong relationships with the environment and our community in everything we do will ensure that short term objectives are reached and long term goals are always in sight.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’BEAUTY’ link=” linktarget=’yes’ icon=’86’] The definition of beauty cannot be clearly or completely articulated, but it is often evident when one is in its presence. While we recognize that no two definitions of beauty are alike, we also believe that most would agree that true beauty is a standard to which we can collectively aspire.
