Husband and wife artists create eye-catching works with pop art flair. Ceravolo explores beloved themes of popular culture and the silver screen including celebrities, cowboys, spacemen and more in richly-layered images that speak to the past and the future.
Candice CMC indulges in large-scale portraits of famous idols, using intricate photo mosaics of a certain dunkable pastry to sweeten the deal. 

The Museum is grateful to partner with Art Link International to present this exhibition.
DRIVING FORCE
Alfred Hair and the 
Florida Highwaymen 
January 8 - February 16, 2020

Alfred Hair (1941-1970). River House Poinciana, (n.d.). Oil on Upson board. Collection of Roger Lightle.

The phenomenon of these celebrated African American artists is the result of many factors – insight, encouragement, motivation, problem-solving, talent, success, and above all, an inherent artistic instinct to make beautiful scenes. The inspiring leadership of Alfred Hair (1941-1970) is frequently described as the catalyst that turned a sideline into an enterprise for the original Highwaymen. Explore the colorful beginnings of this compelling story.

This exhibition leads up to the Museum’s annual Highwaymen weekend celebration and the City’s Highwaymen Festival (see Events).

As a teenager, James Hutchinson (b. 1932) developed his artistic skills in the studio of “Bean” Backus, and quickly grew to become a renowned painter in his own right by following his own path. This special exhibition, drawn from his own collection, presents the artist’s story though his journeys describing the idyllic beauty of the land (Florida, Jamaica, Hawaii), and his captivating insight for the Seminole peoples. Among a lifetime of honors, in 2011 Hutchinson was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame.
