Woodstock Vermont Film Series: 'Art & Krimes by Krimes'

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 3 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 29, 3 p.m. 2023

Artist Jesse Krimes spent his years in prison making art and smuggling it to friends on the outside, including individual pieces of a 40-foot mural that he would not see in its totality until his release. Now, Krimes is both a working artist — sought after by collectors all over the world and with pieces in the Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo and beyond — and a staunch advocate for his fellow former convicts. A new documentary, Art & Krimes by Krimes, sheds light on his struggle to adapt to life after prison and how he is using art to change the conversation about our criminal justice system.

Price: $12-15.
