Beauty Is Embarrassing Film Screening at the Roswell Museum

Thursday, March 1, 2018

Beauty Is Embarrassing is a funny, irreverent, joyful and inspiring documentary featuring the life and current times of artist Wayne White. Raised in the mountains of Tennessee, White started his career as a cartoonist in New York City. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. The film chronicles the vaulted highs and the crushing lows of a commercial artist struggling to find peace and balance between his work and his art. At its core, Beauty Is Embarrassing is a reminder that we should all follow our passion. It is those creative impulses that will lead us to where we need to go. (2013, 88 min, directed by Neil Berkeley, not rated).
