Attend a first viewing of the documentary series AMERICAN ORIGINALS: The Story of the Highwaymen, and hear from the director and producers about honoring the works and legacy of a group of self-taught Black landscape artists in 1960s Florida. They captured the pristine scenic coastlines and cypress backcountry of an undeveloped Florida in their Impressionist style paintings, selling their works from their cars along U.S. Highway 1.
Topics of discussion include the importance of curation, reviews, and representation for outsider artists, and how the documentary series will honor the artists and celebrate their proper place in art history.Buy tickets/get more info now
