The Highwaymen Art Exhibit
All 17 Days of the Fair!


For 60 years Floridians have embraced a legendary group of African American artists known as The Highwaymen. The Highwaymen developed a rapid style of painting that captured a romantic vision of Florida.
Highwaymen Alfred Hair met Ft. Pierce landscape artist A.E. Backus while he was in high school. Backus welcomed him into his studio and gave the aspiring painter lessons. Other artists of this group followed Backus' example and started painting.
The innovative Highwaymen approach to painting was no less than the path they found around the limitations imposed on them by radical segregation. Highwaymen Art Specialists recognizes the many achievements of this group and are supportive of their efforts.
