Lecture: The Highwaymen

Time: 7:00 pm til 8:30 pm

Location: Sarasota Garden Club Great Hall, 1131 Blvd of the Arts Sarasota, FL 34236

Description:
Friends of Sarasota County History Center Lecture by Gary Monroe

This lively PowerPoint-assisted talk by Gary Monroe relates the story of these now-acclaimed artists, who taught themselves to paint idyllic versions of the Florida landscape and sell their creations door-to-door during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Their paintings have become the measure of indigenous Florida art and are now celebrated and widely collected. Having written the seminal book that introduced the Highwaymen to the world, Mr. Monroe successfully nominated them into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame.
