The Pitmen Painters
In 1934, a group of miners in Northern England took part in a mind-opening cultural enrichment program: They learned to paint. Their works depicted the laborers' everyday lives, from working in dark mines to enjoying off-duty pleasures like dog racing. Soon these unexpected artists were being lauded by wealthy collectors and fellow creators. From the the author of Billy Elliot comes a story about who makes art and why it matters. Fri-Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 6 p.m.
