Who Are "Papio's Pals"?

While we consider anyone who celebrates this family-friendly, human-powered sculpture & art bike parade  a friend, “Papio’s Pals” are people that rally behind the kinetic momentum with donations and support.

To date, The Society has raised $7,000 to be offered in 2017 school scholarships and artist sponsorships that will help propel select registrants forward as they proudly parade their kinetic sculpture floats down Duval Street.
Help Put the Move into the Parade's Groove. Become a Papio's Pal! 
Thanks to Historic Tours of America for being Papio's Pals!

​The original “Papio’s Pals” were a team of people from Key West Art & Historical Society & beyond— including current board member Sharon Wells & the National Endowment for the Arts— that put wheels in motion to salvage folk artist Stanley Papio’s work after his death in 1982.  Together they worked to conserve more than 100 sculptural objects and three-dimensional constructions donated to The Society by Papio’s brother, which are now on display at Fort East Martello Museum.
​Thank you for your support!
