Florida Highwaymen

Dubbed “Florida Highwaymen,” these African American artists were entrepreneurial landscape artists in segregated Florida beginning in the 1950s. Mostly self-taught, this small collective of artists was shut out of museums and art galleries. Instead of settling for traditional labor jobs in the citrus industry, however, they forged ahead and found success selling their works to consumers along Florida’s Atlantic coast. This exhibition will be presented in collaboration with the Sarasota African American Cultural Coalition.
