Many of the paintings wound up perfunctorily on hotel-room walls. But works by the founding Highwaymen, Alfred Hair and Harold Newton, are being duly spotlighted at the Spady Museum. Tonight is the opening reception. This is a chance to rediscover cool Floridian art and, through the art, Florida itself. Theres jazz afterwards.
The Florida Highwaymen: Alfred Hair and Harold Newton goes down Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Spady Museum, found at 170 NW Fifth Ave. in Delray Beach. The exhibit runs through June 30. Tickets cost $5. Call 561-279-8883, or visit spadymuseum.org.
