Cris Sandifier Memorial Artists’ Choice Award is selected by the votes of AGPI members.

This award celebrates Cris’s talent and tireless work building the artistic community in the Florida Keys and making art available to the public. She designed and helped create the 60 foot Flagler Railroad Memorial in Key Largo.

After her passing in 2017, AGPI and “Friends of Cris Sandifer” sponsored the first piece of public sculpture art in Key Largo. In memory of Cris, a life size bronze artist’s easel sculpture was erected in Key Largo, Peace Park. (Easel created by Dwayne and Cindy King)
