Artist Spotlight: TIM BURTON exhibit at new york museum of modern art

by Eli Reyes


Here's some cool eye candy for all of you art lovers out there. /Film unveiled some sample pics of  just a few of the 700 pieces of  “...rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera" made by Tim Burton, that they will be exhibiting at the New York Museum of Modern Art. As well as "... an extensive film series spanning Burton’s 27-year career.”

Here are 10 pieces that you can expect to see at the exhibit... if you can make it to New York. Carpool anyone? I'll bring snacks.
