Beanie Backus was an artist who lived in Ft. Pierce who had an exceptional ability to capture the essence of old Florida and the quality of light on the water and the pine scrub of the inland areas. He was also philanthropic with his talent and taught a generation of African American painters who came to be known as the Highwaymen. I recommend that you visit his museum when you are in the area.
