Las Vegas is well-known for its brilliant visual displays and brushes with high society. Film-maker Tim Burton finds the location irresistible. Chosen as the artist to exhibit at the world renowned Neon Museum, Tim Burton has created an amazing array of pieces which represent not only his own career and work but the museum itself. The unique and interesting spaces that incorporate the exhibition room have become a foundation for custom made artworks which make the best use of the given area.
It's been over ten years since Tim Burton showcased his art in The United States, so it's no surprise that the show is gathering lots of attention from around the country. Before becoming world famous for his role in the production of films like Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Batman, Burton had already made his name in the art world. His slightly cosy yet terribly worrying style has no doubt evolved over many experiments in varied media.
Featuring three major exhibits, the work spans across the museum campus. Visitors will find exhibits in the Neon Boneyard, which displays old neon signs, The North Gallery and the Las Vegas' Boneyard Park. Every occupied space will contain a unique experience designed by Tim Burton so fans can truly experience his universe in the flesh. A night time finale to the daily opening contains a light-show which utilises the combined efforts of the old neon signs.
The Tim Burton Exhibition at the Las Vegas Neon Museum is due to open its doors on October 15th and will close February 15th next year.
