The Pitmen Painters

THE PITMEN PAINTERS by Lee Hall, comes to Jacksonville fresh from an acclaimed run in London and on Broadway as a collaboration with the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. This earthy, honest examination of art in ordinary life retells the true story of a group of Newcastle (UK) miners in the 1930’s whose lives change when they mistakenly enroll in an Art class, which leads to worldwide attention as the men become an artist collective known as the Ashington Group. Like Hall’s acclaimed film and musical Billy Elliot, this script tells another inspiring story of what happens when working class laborers (or any disenfranchised group) are exposed to the arts and have the opportunity to realize their potential.
