"The Last Great American Art Movement of the 20th Century."
This loosely-associated group of twenty-five men and one woman came to be known as The Highwaymen. Mostly from Fort Pierce, the artists were inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2004. Their paintings now sell for thousands of dollars and are sought after by collectors throughout the world.
