For all of you non museum folk, LACMA is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It is a great museum to visit at any time but I have seen a few exhibits that I will never forget.
My ultimate favorite was the Tim Burton Exhibit from 5/29/11-10/31/11. If you are a huge Tim Burton fan like me, then you know how many great movies he has made way back before we even realized who Time Burton really was. There were movie props from just about every Tim Burton movies including BEETLEJUICE, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, and MARS ATTACKS.
The exhibition brings together over 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, moving-image works, storyboards, puppets, concept artworks, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, including art from a number of unrealized and little-known personal projects. Many of these objects come from the artist’s own archive, as well as from studio archives and private collections of Burton’s collaborators. Check out this awesome entrance to the exhibit!
