Yesterday we told you that New York’s Museum of Modern Art was going to have an exhibition of the art of Tim Burton. The exhibition will include “over 700 examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, and includes an extensive film series spanning Burton’s 27-year career.” This event also coincides with The Art of Tim Burton book that Brendon wrote about in April. Read the the full press release here.
