Uncovered Art 

When: Wed., June 17 2015
More art was stolen than created during Hitler’s reign in Nazi Germany. However, director Christophe Cognet was able to aggregate the beauty born from that dreary time. Today, the Cleveland Museum of Art screens Cognet’s documentary Because I was a Painter, which chronicles the art and artists bred in concentration camps. From sketches drawn with leftover coal and scraps of paper to ornate oil paintings depicting the horrors of Buchenwald, the film shows off the unique art that was created from that unique time. The film shows at 7 p.m. Tickets are $11. (Rees)
