ENRICHING LIVES IN ELDER COHHUNITIES FLOW museum came known as the Florida Highwaymen because they would sell their freshly fin- ished paintings of old Florida's landscapes for $10 to $20 along the side of the high- ways. Today their 200,000 plus paintings have gathered significant interest and have become quite collectible. At auctions some of these par- ticular painters' works have been recognized with high prices, notably important older works by the "original" members. Bob and Flory discovered the genre as they attended estate sales and auctions over the years.

Last September, the Kahns were honored by the Smith- sonian Institution for their gift to the new museum in Washington, D.C. Bob is the eldest son of Wolf and Tybe Kahn, in whose honor the gift of a Collection of Florida Highwaymen paint- ings were presented. "My parents were very much aware of the racial is- sues of the day, long before it became a worthy cause," said Bob. "Amgng his many activi- ties, Wolfwould go to the labor camps on Sundays, during the 1950s and 196 teach swimming and arfl By chance, he met and worked with a number of the black artists. He recognized their capabilities and provided encouragement for them to pursue their passion for art."
