Art Lecture: The Highwaymen Influence & Accomplishments @ KB Library

One of the largest collectors of Florida Highwaymen art, Roger Lightle, comes to the Library to discuss the history, influence, and importance of the Florida
Highwaymen artists.

Listen as Roger delves into the background behind some of their works, as well as the personal backgrounds of these 26 African-American Floridians who were mostly self-taught artists who created over 200,000 works of art from the 1950s through the 1980s, often selling them from their trunks or by bicycle along Florida’s roadsides. These artists’ works have been hailed as an important part of American Folk History.

Artists, photographers and musicians interested in showcasing their work at the Library may contact Amanda Carranza 772-462-1607 or carranzaa@stlucieco.org
