The African Queen and Key Largo
We also visit an iconic piece of film history docked in Key Largo. The African Queen, the boat used by Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn in the namesake film has been restored and put back in service by a Key Largo Couple. Now over a century old, the African Queen is registered as a national historic site.

art loft is a weekly 30-minute art program that showcases local and national artists, openings, installations, performances, and art organizations, that are positioning South Florida as an emerging leader in the world of art. “With most media outlets cutting back on arts coverage at a time when this region is actually beginning to define itself as an international leader in the arts it seemed like the right time to shine a light on our local community,” says Neal Hecker, Chief Content Officer for WPBT2. “art loft will draw on the wide variety of local producers to help develop and produce content that will provide viewers a lens on this thriving and exciting arts scene.” art loft is designed to be a collaboration between WPBT2, local artists, producers and other PBS stations around the country. Funding for art loft is made possible through generous grants from Newman’s Own Foundation, Alvah H. & Wyline P. Chapman Foundation and the Florida Keys Tourism Council.
Watch art loft Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. on WPBT2!
