THE HIGHWAYMEN….Vistas and Visions (art exhibit)
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, very few of the original 26 artists remain but fortunately, many of their paintings are showcased at The Elliott Museum in this special exhibit.
Museum Admission: Adults $14, Seniors $12, Children $6, 5 and under free
