Tim Burton at the LACMA

20 Jul

Over the weekend, I went to see the Tim Burton retrospective at the LACMA. I’ve always been a huge fan of his films, and seeing the evolution of his artwork and creativity from high school until today was really neat and rewarding. Besides sketches, storyboards, costumes, and other works, there was an entire room full of black lights devoted to black light sculpture- super cool!! Below are a few of my favorite pieces from the exhibit. I also spent some time wandering through the Picaso’s, Koons’, and Warhol’s, among many others :)

I loved this early sketch so much I bought a lithograph of it from the gift shop for my bedroom!

There was a special room for black light sculptures and artwork, including speakers playing a score by Danny Elfman

Aren’t they all fantastic? There are literally over 1000 pieces in the exhibit, so this is just the tip of the iceberg. Have you seen any cool exhibits lately? What are your favorite artists? Are you a Tim Burton fan? Someone please tell me I’m not the only art nerd around the style blogosphere!

    I’m so jealous! My favorite movie when I was little was Nightmare Before Christmas, quite different than every other three year olds!
