"Highway to the Soul: The Disappearing Florida Landscape"
2005-06-03 until 0000-00-00
Catherine Hickman Theater Gallery
Gulfport, FL, USA United States of America

City of Imagination is proud to present a month long exhibition of the works of the   Highwaymen, which opens June 3rd, 2005. The Highwaymen are a group of black self taught artists from the east coast who brilliantly captured the vibrant beauty of a vanishing Florida. The paintings were originally intended for sale to tourists but are now recognized for their value as an important contribution to American Art. The exhibition is curated by Gulfport resident Diane Craig, a freelance writer, an adjunct professor and the creative force behind the local chapter of the Socrates Café.

The works on display are from the collection of Tony Hayton. Mr. Hayton a Canadian collector started his acquisition of Highwaymen paintings in the early 1990s. Since that time it has grown into one of the finest collections of Highwaymen art in the world.

The exhibition is part of the City as Museum project which uses Gulfport City Buildings as a venue for bringing high quality art directly to the public.

The exhibition will be on view in three parts throughout the month of June 2005 in the following locations:

The Catherine Hickman Theater Gallery
The Gulfport Library
The Gulfport Casino
