Independent Lens

Beauty Is Embarrassing

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Wayne White is a nut. The current art-world darling got his big break when he helped create the unhinged children's show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse." His off-kilter style and self-deprecating sense of humor offer a peak into an imagination that refuses to grow up. This film chronicles the vaulted highs and the crushing lows of this Tennessean commercial artist as he struggles to find peace and balance between his work and his art.

The panelists were: Delia Robinson, painter, sculptor and illustrator Daniel Barlow, photographer for Green Mountain Graveyards and founder of Trees and Hills Comics.
