In the 1950s, several African American self-taught artists from the Treasure Coast began painting Floridas 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, very few of the original 26 artists remain but fortunately, many of their paintings, which are now sought after by collectors worldwide, still do. More than 70 of their paintings will be showcased at The Elliott Museum in this special exhibit.
