Presented by OSU Institute of Technology Visual Communications.
OSU Institute of Technology Visual Communications proudly presents a special appearance by American artist, cartoonist and puppeteer Wayne White at Super Saturday on April 13. An Emmy award-winning artist, art director, cartoonist, and illustrator, White is best known for his work on Pee Wee’s Playhouse. He’s also worked on music videos for Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel. Since then, his amazing creativity has been the source of inspiration to others as chronicled in the recently released documentary Beauty Is Embarrassing, an award-winning film on White’s life by Neil Berkeley.
For over 30 years, Wayne White has made an indelible mark on the creative world. As a designer, painter, puppeteer, sculptor, and musician, Mr. White created images and ideas that are an integral – yet sometimes subconscious – part of the pop culture lexicon. To this day, he still gets up every morning to do the only thing his body and mind were made to do…create. Whether the world acknowledges it or not.
Super Saturday is a community homecoming celebration and alumni reunion, with fun-filled activities for the entire family. Discover Okmulgee and see why OSU Institute of Technology is a world-class leader in technical education.
