The giant show will feature works by the father of 'Beetlejuice', 'The Nightmare Before Christmas', 'Corpse Bride', and many more goth hits!
Is it Halloween already? Because it sure feels like a hella good time to be alive! For the first time in TEN YEARS, Tim Burton's art will be exhibited to the public in the United States and fans of horror can't keep calm!
I mean, the last we saw Tim's brilliant work on display was years ago in New York, it is about time we are blessed with some gothic magic again. According to Las Vegas Weekly, Downtown's Neon Museum will be hosting a GIANT Tim Burton exhibit this year which will feature the celebrated horror icon's new and previously displayed works.
The giant exhibit will kick off this Halloween season, October 15th, and will continue for not a week or two but for MONTHS! The horror fest will come to an end on February, so you know, you have plenty of time to make arrangements and catch the awesome show in Las Vegas. The ticket details are not out as of yet, but we'll get them to you once we have an update.
"To say we’re flattered that Mr. Burton has chosen our museum for this exhibition would be an understatement,” said Neon Museum president and CEO Rob McCoy. “But when you think about it, Tim is one of the few artists who can match the great imagination of Las Vegas.” Burton is a filmmaker, artist, writer, and animator, and is famous for creating gothic horror but cute movies.
Some of his best films include Beetlejuice (1988), Edward Scissorhands (1990), The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Sleepy Hollow (1999), and Dark Shadows (2012), among others. His works also include blockbusters like Big Adventure (1985), Batman (1989) and its first sequel Batman Returns (1992), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003), and Alice in Wonderland (2010). His last movie was the live-action reboot of Dumbo, which was again well received by the audience.
"Tim [email protected] Neon Museum, will feature new and previously displayed large-scale work by the celebrated filmmaker, animator, and author, and will be staged in such a way as to take full advantage of the Neon Museum's combination of indoor and outdoor spaces. The show, a site-specific collaboration between the Museum and Burton, will allow the filmmaker to reflect on his creative legacy while showing his love for the Neon Boneyard, which he popularized during a memorable sequence in his 1996 comedy Mars Attacks," LVW reported.
The last Burton show was held at the New York's Museum of Modern Art and it drew more than 800,000 attendees, imagine that! In fact, the show went ahead and became the third-most popular exhibition in the museum's history! Several pieces of Burton's art are displayed regularly throughout the world but this will be the first full show in nearly a decade and we are super thrilled.
In his Vegas exhibition, his work will be "spread across the iconic museum's campus: the museum's outdoor Boneyard exhibition space, its adjacent North Gallery and the visitors' center," according to TimeOut. Will you be checking it out?
