Independent Lens Episode: "Beauty Is Embarrassing"

Season 14, Episode 6
Episode Synopsis: A portrait of visual artist Wayne White, whose work is an indelible part of American pop culture due to his contributions to "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and such music videos as Peter Gabriel's "Big Time." Those early successes were followed by a fall, however, a time accented by struggle, self-reflection and ultimately reinvention as a respected painter and performer. Included: remarks from Matt Groening, Paul Reubens, Mark Mothersbaugh, Todd Oldham, Gary Panter, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
Original Air Date: Jan 21, 2013
