Thrill After Thrill: Thirty Years of Wayne White at the Hunter Museum of American Art

Installation shots of THRILL AFTER THRILL: Thirty Years of Wayne White
at The Hunter Museum of American Art

From the Hunter Museum of American Art website:
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!

WAYNE WHITE: Art Is Supposed to Hypnotize You or Something - Art and Culture Center, Hollywood, Florida

Who is Broward County named for and what would he look like if three-time Emmy Award-winning artist Wayne White made a giant puppet of him?

Find out this summer when White creates a supersized puppet of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward during a 10-day residency at the Art and Culture Center. For his first exhibition in Florida, the Los Angeles-based artist will create a gallery fun house that also features his witty “Word” paintings, new drawings from recent artist residencies in Key West and Captiva, and a collection of whimsical puppets made from found objects.

11 YEARS - Anniversary Group Show: December 6 - 23, 2014

11th year Anniversary Exhibition

Ron Athey / Josh Bolin / Daniel Brice / Thomas Burke / Carole Caroompas / Cole Case / Alec Egan / Samantha Fields / Bob Flanagan and Sheree Rose / Tim Forcum / Eric Freeman / Sush Machida Gaikotsu / Margaret Griffith / Dion Johnson / Ali Kheradyar / Patrick Lee / Joe Lloyd / Zachari Logan / Bob Mizer / Matthew Penkala / Nancy Riegelman / Chad Robertson / Joe Schmelzer / Nicolas Shake / Aaron Sheppard / Arne Svenson / Christian Tedeschi / Tom of Finland / Mark Dean Veca / Wayne White / Jessica Wimbley


Western Project proudly presents our 11th Year Anniversary Exhibition marking a decade and a year of programming. As one of the pioneer galleries of the Culver City arts district, the show will include gallery artists and some special guests; each an irregular, unruly and often impolite force of nature, all burdened with the disease of individual thinking and a call to find a greater depth of human experience. We celebrate with abandon and humor, knowing our job is yet unfinished.
