Tim Burton is one of the most iconic filmmakers of our time. His unique aesthetic, quirky characters, and love of the macabre have made him a cult favorite. But while his work has been celebrated in film festivals and art galleries around the world, there is no official museum dedicated to his work.
That’s why fans of Burton’s work have long been calling for a dedicated museum to honor the filmmaker. There have been several attempts at creating such a museum over the years, but none have come to fruition yet. The closest thing to a Tim Burton Museum of Modern Art is “The Art of Tim Burton” exhibit that has toured around the world since 2009.
The exhibit is a celebration of Burton’s work, featuring more than 700 pieces from throughout his career. The collection includes paintings, drawings, storyboards, film clips, and props from some of his most beloved films such as “Beetlejuice” and “Edward Scissorhands”. It also includes some never-before-seen personal works by Burton.
Unfortunately, the exhibit is not permanent and its tour schedule can be unpredictable. The good news is that it will be making another stop in 2021 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). This will be its first visit to Los Angeles since 2013 so fans in Southern California will be able to experience it firsthand.
At this time, there is no official Tim Burton Museum of Modern Art. However, fans can still experience his work through “The Art of Tim Burton” exhibit which tours around the world from time to time and will be making a stop at LACMA in Los Angeles in 2021.
