Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Presents The Highwaymen: The Walker Collection of Florida Self-Taught Art
Art in the Chambers Summer Exhibition – May 23 to September 14, 2023
Orange County, FL – Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the Public Art Review Board is very pleased to present The Highwaymen: The Walker Collection of Florida Self-Taught Art from May 23 to September 14, 2023. The Highwaymen captured America’s postwar spirit through the prodigious output of lively oil paintings that depicted tropical landscapes, a land of bountiful possibilities. Their vintage works drew people to the art and to Florida as a state of mind, a great escape.
Many thanks to Lance Walker, executive producer of the documentary, The Highwaymen and the world’s leading collector of paintings by the Florida Highwaymen and Florida self-taught artists. Mr. Walker’s mission is to recognize and celebrate Florida’s self-taught and so-called outsider art and artists. His forward-thinking vision complements established art museums and humanistic culture by expanding the range of the fine arts with fresh and challenging artworks by those who are not formally and/or academically trained.
