Opening June 23, 2019 - Look at You, Key West: Photos by Maggie Evans Silverstein Key West’s most sacred secret: it is a place where everyone fits in, because the more you don’t, the more you do. A unique coinage. And now, lucky us, we get to see the island through Maggie Silverstein’s photographic lens: kind, winking, colorful, quirky, respectful and above all, celebratory.
