HIGHWAYMEN Florida's Traveling '26' Designed by
April Martin Chartrand
Materials: Found objects, coins, keys, jewelry, paint, paper, metals/plastics.
About the artist's that inspired me:
"The Highwaymen (Twenty-six Florida's landscape artists) began during the 1950s during the Federal/State sanctioned "Jim Crow Era" in the United States of American. The Highwaymen were based in Fort Pierce, Florida, and consisting of twenty-six (twenty-five 25 men and one woman) African-American painters. The group was co-founded by Henry Hair and Harold Newton."
Legal Note to the public:
I am not affiliated with the original 26 Highwaymen. My work was only inspired by the research that I've had done and after speaking multiple times to Ms. Mary Ann Carroll (March 24, 2013... - the only original female Highwaymen) as well as subsequent conversations.
