In the 1950’s several African American self taught artists from the Treasure Coast began painting Florida’s vivid landscapes. Coined as the “Highwaymen” they sold their art out of their car trunks as they traveled the highways, which led to their nickname. Highwaymen paintings now hang in the Smithsonian and several Highwaymen artists are represented in the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. Today few of the original 28 artists remain.
Many of their paintings are now sought after by collectors worldwide. More then 70 of their paintings are showcased at The Elliott Museum for this special exhibit.
