THRILL AFTER THRILL: THIRTY YEARS OF WAYNE WHITE

ON VIEW JUNE 30 THROUGH OCTOBER 1, 2017

Come explore the exuberant world of artist Wayne White!

Populated by larger than life puppets, wildly vivid paintings and fantastical sculptures, this summer exhibition promises to be fun, entertaining and engaging for children of all ages.

Wayne White is more than your average artist—he is a set designer, an art director, a comic book artist, a puppeteer, a painter, a sculptor—the list is endless. His work for the riotous Pee Wee’s Playhouse earned him three Emmys; he has been acclaimed for his sets on Beakman’s World and music videos for The Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel.

Characterized by a playfully satirical take on the art world, Wayne’s paintings and sculptures also draw on his nostalgia for his Southern roots. If you like your artists a little rebellious, your artwork a little mutinous and your exhibition completely exciting, this is the place for you!
