Historical Briefing: Old Florida Captured in Oil – A Personal Journey with The Highwaymen,
Historical Briefing: Old Florida Captured in Oil – A Personal Journey with The Highwaymen, presented by John McCarthy, vice president for Historic Spanish Point
August 11 from 12 p.m. noon- 1:00 p.m.
In the 1950s, young African Americans on the east coast of Florida were inspired to paint their vision of Florida as they saw it. This began a movement that captured old Florida in colorful and evocative oil paintings. The style has seen a resurgence in recent years as newcomers to Florida discover the seemingly simple, yet powerful images created by native-born artists. This virtual program will explore the presenter’s pursuit of highwaymen paintings, the artists and old Florida memories.
