Beauty is Embarrassing is a documentary about Wayne White, an artist, art director, illustrator, puppeteer. Known for his illustrations in the New York Times, and perhaps even more so for his designs in the iconic Pee Wee’s Playhouse, White has had an amazing career, that has continued today into paintings and other public works. Judging by the films trailer, I’m definitely interested in learning more about White and his body of unique and amazing work.
The film is directed by Neil Berkeley, and will be screening at the Somerville Theater, Monday, April 30th at 7:00pm. Tickets are available at iffboston.org.
