California Vacation Part 4
We went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to see the Tim Burton Exhibit. This was a great show that spanned Tim Burton's artistic career, even going as far back as his high school! It was neat to see progression and similar themes throughout the work. I loved seeing all my favorite movie-related items, such as puppets from Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Willy Wonka, and Edward Scissorhands. I wish more from James and the Giant Peach were there, but I was thrilled to see what we did. Here are some of my photos before I got yelled at by an attendant.
Do you recognize this from Edward Scissorhands? It is one of my favs!
These pictures do not do this exhibition justice, really. There was so much art to look at, it was well worth it. I loved seeing concept sketches and paintings, but it also made me remember some of his movies I forgot all about - Sleepy Hollow! Mars Attacks! What a great October day!
