A large-scale exhibition featuring the work of renowned American film director, producer, artist, writer and animator Tim Burton is coming to Las Vegas.
Opening Oct. 15 and on view through Feb. 15, 2020, Lost Vegas: Tim Burton @ The Neon Museum will comprise of sculptural and digital installations celebrating Burton’s link to Las Vegas’ historical neon heritage. These artworks, many of which will be site-specific creations, will play with the museum’s landmark sign collection, which was prominently featured in Burton’s film Mars Attacks!
With a gift of $250,000, the Las Vegas-based Engelstad foundation will fund a substantial portion of the costs associated with bringing the landmark exhibition, which marks the first time in nearly a decade Burton will stage an exhibition of his original fine art in the United States, to the museum this fall.
Burton’s past exhibitions have drawn millions of patrons around the world in cities such as Melbourne, Los Angeles, Paris, Prague, Tokyo, São Paulo and Mexico City. His exhibition at MoMA in New York City drew over 800,000 visitors, making it the third most attended exhibition ever.
