ARTISTS WE LOVE¬

Wayne White is an American artist with an expansive practice. Among his many roles, White is a studio artist, art director, illustrator, and puppeteer. His upbringing in Chattanooga, TN has often served as inspiration for his work. White is well known for his word paintings which feature large text blended into found landscape paintings. White's messages pokes fun at contemporary culture and reference his Southern roots.

We are thrilled to announce an upcoming collaboration with the artist—the sale of signed, limited-edition prints to benefit the Museum. White’s selected work, and original word painting titled The Melted Bag of Words in the Parked Car of My Mind, will be released on May 13 as an archival pigment print with only 250 editions available.
