Below the towering sculptures and paintings at Artspace Shreveport is the aw, shucks artist Wayne White; party with White on Fri, June 6, 6 pm to 9 pm
Lighten up when you check out the internationally-known artist Wayne White. His gigantic cardboard-based sculptures, the droll words he has painted upon thrift-store framed paintings: none of it is sacred to the man from Los Angeles who has kept his accent from the days when he was from Chattanooga.
He won fame in the 80's with design for the TV show Pee Wee's Playhouse, plus direction for a couple of seminal music videos. Since then his droll attitude has carried him to the top of the marquee in terms of name artists.
Party with the big name but aw, shucks artist on Fri, June 6, 6 pm to 9 pm, at Artspace Shreveport. Music by the estimable singer AJ Haynes and her group, The Seratones. $10 Admission /$5 with Military ID. Cash bar.
710 Texas St. Shreveport
Mr White is returning in July with animated gigantiples. See his mega puppets in a Shreveport Common parade at UnScene on Saturday, July 12.
