“Mr. Burton’s extraordinary genius is evident on all that he creates,” Syfy President Dave Howe said in a statement, “and his unique vision and perspective are reflected in a practically unrivaled array of projects.” Syfy is the event’s lead sponsor.
The exhibit brings together more than 700 examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes and cinematic ephemera from Burton’s 27-year career, including an extensive film series.
Burton’s films include Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd.
