Tim Burton at MOMAThis Tim Burton exhibition (closed April 26, 2010) shows drawings from his past and a few shorts and commercials he made. There is also a room devoted to the real movie props from his films. For example things from BeetleJuice, Planet of the Apes, Ed Wood, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and more. It does not have things from Alice in Wonderland because the exhibition came out before the film did. In the gift shop they have a book of Alice in Wonderland for sale.

Johnny, Helena, Tim and DannyI liked learning about Tim Burton more even though I already knew a lot about him and had already seen and loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland and parts of Edward Scissorhands.

I liked the movie aritfacts in this exhibit. I especially liked the Batman masks and the Edward Scissorhand life size model. I also liked the screen with the Tim Burton commercials. There was one with a guy who had watches and he started kicking people in the faces and also one where people took their heads off and they had skeleton heads. I liked his sculptures alot. I liked them because I liked learning the history of how he made commercials and learning about Tim Burton himself.

I think this photo is from the opening of the exhibition. Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Burton, and Danny DeVito pose for this photo. Someday soon I would love to meet them in person.
