The Art of Burton on Exhibit in New York

tim_burtonTim Burton’s dark imagination is now on display at the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). It opened this past weekend and is scheduled to run through April 26, 2010.

“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.
