His depiction of life has developed into a stylized realism bordering on the surreal, described as Post-Modern Southern Funk. Broadway's past works have included social and political commentary, philosophical interpretations, landscapes, figural works, a series of romanticized steamboats and watermelon-eating cherubs.

Broadway's work is included in the collections of The Ogden Museum of Southern Art New Orleans, LA; Gary Motley, Inc.; State Farm Insurance; Blackwood & Matthews, Atlanta, GA; Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA; J. Russell Group, Atlanta, GA; Sutherland Asbill, Brennan, Atlanta, GA
