LOS ANGELES - Hollywood will go highbrow Sunday when the Los Angeles County Museum of Art opens its newest exhibit: Tim Burton, a retrospective. Even if you didnt know the name of the artist, the artistic vision of Burton is unmistakable. From his drawings and costumes for Edward Scissorhands to the pieces created for the exhibition, like a carousel of creatures that spins endlessly to eerie music. This Los Angeles stop is another in a world-wide tour, which opened in New York two years ago. Burton said seeing the exhibit was like looking in to his closet. Burtons art will be displayed in three phases of his life from his hometown of Burbank. In many ways I think Burbank is a touchstone for him, perhaps originally as some place to escape from but its still also the setting for many of his movies and ideas, said LACMA curator Britt Salvesen. In a statement, Burton wrote that growing up in Burbank, there wasnt much of a museum culture. He had never visited a museum until he was a teenager, unless you count the Hollywood Wax Museum. The vision in Burtons movies, like Alice in Wonderland and The Nightmare Before Christmas were inspired by monster movies, TV and playing in the local cemetery. Burton went to California Institute of the Arts in Valencia and took a turn working for Disney before going his own way. Now his work has come home to the countys museum. The show is scheduled to run from May 29 to Oct. 31, 2011. The show will feature more than 700 individual pieces of art from Burtons own archive, as well as from studio archives and private collections of Burtons collaborators. AC
