The Art of Tim Burton

If you’re in Los Angeles between now and the end of October, you should head over to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which is hosting the life work’s of visionary director Tim Burton, master of the gothic fairy tale. The art exhibition, which contains more than 700 pieces, has been shown in New York City, Melbourne, and Toronto, and now it’s landed in L.A.

The Tim Burton retrospective contains all sorts of images, props, costumes, photos, puppets, and storyboards, including everything from handwritten ideas to Johnny Depp’s Edward Scissorhands costume. There are also tons of never-before-seen sketches and artworks from Burton’s personal collection, and when you enter the exhibit you’ll hear accompaniment from Danny Elfman’s music from Burton’s many movies.

But even more than an art exhibit, it’s a complete examination of Burton’s life, split into three parts that show how he became one of the most unique and acclaimed entertainers of our time. For those who can’t make it to the L.A. exhibit, this website has dozens of photos of the pieces on display (though it only barely scratches the surface).
