In the 1950s, several African-American self-taught artists from the Treasure Coast began painting Florida’s vivid landscapes. Coined as the “Highwaymen,” they sold their art out of their car trunks as they traveled the highways, which led to their nickname. Highwaymen paintings now hang in the Smithsonian, and several Highwaymen artists are represented in the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. Many of their paintings — which are now sought after by collectors worldwide — still do exist and 70 of them are on display at The Elliott Museum in Stuart Oct. 20 - Feb. 24.
