Event Details

Florida Humanities Council presenter, Gary Monroe presents The Highwaymen: Florida's African-American Landscape Painters.  Monroe's presentation 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. 

Mr. Monroe's book will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.

This program is free and open to the public.  Seating is available on a first come, first serve basis.  *Registration is required.  **Paper tickets are NOT required at the door.
