Wayne White’s Wayne-O-Rama

wayne-white-wayneorama

Artist Wayne White has returned home to Chattanooga to create a huge year-long installation called Wayne-O-Rama, and the show opens on Saturday, November 19th. You may know him as the guy who won 3 Emmys for his art direction on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, or maybe you recognize his fantastic text paintings that spread all over the Internet. If neither of these things rings a bell, you should (you must) watch the documentary Beauty Is Embarrassing.

I had the pleasure of meeting Wayne and his wife Mimi out in Hawaii a couple years ago, and we built some cardboard sculptures together. He’s one of the most creative people I’ve ever met and has a real passion for making art fun. If you happen to live in Tennessee you gotta go see this show!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
