Volume I Episodes:
Of Castles, Kings, and Jesters
Jim Bishop keeps adding to his famed 160 foot hand built castle in the Colorado Rockies, while in Mullinville, Kansas MT Ligget creates roadside effigies of every politician he reviles and every woman he reveres.
Three visionary artists transform junk into fantastic treasures that fascinate, educate and provoke — from Vince Hannemann’s Cathedral of Junk and Scott Steven’s Smutt Putt Heaven in Austin, Texas, to Joe Minter’s African Village in America in the birthplace of the civil rights movement, Birmingham, Alabama.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie…
Charlie Stagg left the elite art world for Vidor, Texas to build a back woods home studio from discarded soda and beer cans with the aid of friends and fans from far and wide. Meanwhile, self-taught craftsman Charlie Lucas (a.k.a. “The Tin Man”) draws the attention of the international art world with his intricate emotional sculptures built from the spoils of dumpster-dives in Selma, Alabama with his best friend, legendary storyteller Kathryn Tucker Wyndham.
