Hockney, In Verse, Paper Airplanes
Friday, November 06, 2009
Studio 360 waits for David Hockney. The artist returns to the English countryside where he grew up, to paint some of the most vivid landscapes of his career. In the documentary "Waiting for David Hockney" outsider artist Billy Pappas hopes his idol, Hockney, will come to see a single drawing Pappas has been working on for eight years. And we'll meet the struggling single moms of Troy, NY through the eyes of a poet and a photographer.
