FLORIDA HIGHWAYMEN PAINTERS
The Florida Highwaymen are a group of 26 African-American landscape artists (25 men and 1 woman) from the Fort Pierce, Florida area who painted brilliantly colored landscapes from the mid-1950s through the 1980s. Early on, unknown African-American artists were excluded from the traditional world of art shows and galleries. Although facing racial and cultural barriers in the "Jim Crow" South, they rose above those attitudes. Art was a craft and a way to earn a living.
