The Tom Majors Tribute to Wood is a month-long, island-wide celebration of the creative potential of wood, and by extension, a statement of faith that the intersection of humankind and nature can result in objects and experiences filled with beauty and meaning. It is coordinated by The Studios of Key West with artists and organizations across the island, and made possible by the Tom Majors Endowment for Wood Artists.



Tom Majors served and protected his country flying B-25 bombers during World War II, followed by a career building infrastructure and public works programs that still sustain the nation. On retirement, he found joy and connectedness in volunteering his time to others and crafting simple yet elegant functional objects in wood. It is this dual spirit – of expansive ambition made tangible through handmade things – that the Tom Majors Fund seeks to nurture in Key West, with ongoing funding for programs serving and celebrating artists who work with wood.
