Description

This exhibition honors the artistic contribution and historical relevance of The Highwaymen, an innovative ensemble of self-taught African-American landscape painters founded by charismatic artist and entrepreneur Alfred Hair in Fort Pierce, Fla., in the 1950s. Birthed in the segregated South and defying Jim Crow era oppression The Highwaymen served as the catalyst to an unprecedented arts movement with an ongoing legacy that demands inclusion in American contemporary Art History. The artwork displayed in this exhibition is from the collections of Doretha Hair Truesdell (the widow of Alfred Hair) and Jimmy Stovall.
