Artist at the annual Highwaymen Festival in a local park in Fort Pierce, Florida. The Highwaymen were African American painters who sold their art out of their cars in the 1950s and 60s. Due to Jim Crow, they were not permitted to show their work in art galleries. They painted colorful Florida landscapes. Today those who are still living and their descendants continue painting. Their work has become quite valuable, especially work by some of the original Highwaymen.
