The Mystic Museum of Art Museum: Roy McLendon Art Exhibit
July 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Thursday, July 5, 2018 the Mystic Museum of Art is proudly hosting Roy McLendon, a member of the Florida Highwaymen artists, as part of our VOXISH series.
In the early 1950’s through the 1980’s a group of twenty-six African-American artists known as the “Florida Highwaymen” used vivid and bright colors to display the beautiful untouched Florida landscape. One of the original Florida Highwaymen artists will present a history of this group of primarily self-taught artists, as well as tell first hand accounts about some of his experiences as a Florida Highwayman. An informal reception will follow Roy’s presentation.
$5 for members, $10 for non-members. Sponsored by the New London NAACP
