On October 23, 2019, Limelight Magazine attended director Tim Burton’s art exhibition at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. This was the first time in nearly a decade that Burton’s original fine art and sculptures have been on display in the U.S., with many pieces being specifically created for this event.
According to the Neon Museum’s website, the presentation of Burton’s art in Las Vegas is a unique experience where the host institution served as inspiration for his creations.
“I’ve been coming to Las Vegas since I was born, basically. Weekend trips to Vegas as a child, which was very forbidden at that time, it was like an adult amusement park,” said Burton in his artist statement. “That’s the beautiful thing and weird thing about Las Vegas — The perception and the illusion of it all.”
The exhibit runs through February 15, 2020. Visit the Neon Museum for more information or to purchase tickets.
