Tim Burton and the MOMA



Whew. It's been a week! It's good to look through some pictures from a few weeks back... I headed to the Tim Burton exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art with a friend a couple o' weeks ago. The exhibit sold out quickly, but thanks to our trusty student IDs, we got in! We couldn't take any pictures inside the exhibit, but I went crazy in the MOMA garden area, which was surrounded by lots of odd buildings. The whole area looked like it could be straight out of a Tim Burton film! One of these photos pictures the creative entrance and waiting area before the Burton exhibit (guess which one). Another photo features a grass-cut figure found in the gardens that looks very similar to a certain other grass-cut figure in a certain Tim Burton film (Edward Scissorhands).  The exhibit itself was incredible. It was hard to believe that everything I was seeing came out of this one individual's mind. Crazy and beautiful! Looking through these makes me want to watch a Burton film this very moment. Those of you who are fans, what's your favorite Tim Burton film? I think mine will always be The Nightmare before Christmas. Hope ya'll are having a great week!

Your pictures are wonderful as always! My favorite Tim Burton Movie is a tie between Sleepy Hollow and Big Fish and James and the Giant Peach and Beetlejuice and Edward Scissor Hands and Alice in Wonderland. Haha.
