The Huffington Post Finds The Florida Highwaymen -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

I'm always excited to see our Florida Artists get press outside of our State.  Jane Chafin, Director of Offramp Gallery in California, writes a nice blog post for The Huffington  Turns out Jane found out about The Highwaymen from a recommendation made by Netflix.  The Florida Highwaymen documentary is  available on Netflix now.  How far the group has come!  Jane includes two good YouTube's and some basic biographical information about the Florida artist group.  Beanie Backus gets his proper credit and the whole post is very positive.

From the post; 
One of the best things about writing a weekly art blog is that I'm always on the lookout for hidden gems of art history -- or in this case, outsider art history -- that come as a wonderful surprise to me, much like finding buried treasure ... My curiosity went on high alert and I rented the DVD ASAP.
