MoMa: Tim Burton Special Exhibit

For the fantastic, morbid, whimsical, and strange, Tim Burton does not disappoint when it came to debuting his special collection of art, sculpture, and memorabilia at New York's MoMa.  Whether it's sketches from his high school years to movie work (Pee Wee's Big Adventures to Nightmare Before Christmas to Corpse Bride), the exhibit is worth taking your time to peruse. Just beware of large crowds!  After taking close looks at his personal sketches, you can see influences from other artists like Edward Gorey. If you can't make it to New York, MoMa's Tim Burton interactive exhibit is worth perusing and includes interviews with the spooky director himself. Best? It's free. Tim Burton Exhibit runs at the MoMa from November 22, 2009 – April 26, 2010.
