Just once, for one day, we’d like to peek inside Tim Burton’s brain to determine the source of the kooky yet lovable characters that appear in his films and illustrations. While we’re holding our breath for that to happen, we’ll also be queuing up at LACMA this Sunday to get a peek inside the artist/filmmaker/writer/illustrator’s retrospective that opens this weekend and will remain up through Halloween this year (how appropriate!)
The exhibition, which originated at MOMA in 2009, compiles more than 700 pieces including many little known personal works from Burton’s own archives.
To see the Tim Burton exhibit, visit the Resnick Pavilion @ LACMA from May 29-Oct 31, 2011. Hours for the opening this Sunday are 11 AM-8 PM.
