The Highwaymen: Black Artists of the Florida Coast at the Castellani Art Museum

The Highwaymen are a group of 26 affiliated African American artists who created stylized, impressionistic scenes of Florida’s magnificent forests, swamps, beaches, and sunsets. They painted landscapes throughout the 1950s through the 1970s. Facing overt racism, the Highwaymen were barred from exhibiting in established Florida art museums and galleries. The painters instead found a creative solution to share their work: Florida roadsides. With automotive travel booming, these entrepreneurs attracted curious travelers who pulled over to purchase their colorful works.
