11/20/09: Waiting for Hockney

Artist Billy Pappas from Julie Checkoway's film \"Waiting for Hockney\"

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – For 10 years the aspiring artist Billy Pappas worked on one life-sized portrait. He had set out to reinvent realism - to invent a new art form. Doug talks to filmmaker Julie Checkoway about her new documentary "Waiting for Hockney." Checkoway followed Pappas through what some might call his compulsive, eccentric process - and on his quest to meet the one person he felt could validate his work. (Rebroadcast)
