Meeting Tim Burton:  From My House to His Art Show

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/the_ticket/item/meeting_tim_burton_from_my_house_to_his_art_show_20110531

At the opening of "Tim Burton," the ghoulishly charming filmmaker's retrospective at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Saturday, the wild-haired auteur held court at the Resnick Pavilion, where more than 700 pieces of his movie and personal artwork will be on display through Halloween. My husband, Ron Magid, and I were eager to attend -- not only for the chance to meet this master of the macabre but also because one of our own pieces is on display. It's a scarecrow head from Burton's 2001 remake of "Planet of the Apes," a three-foot-tall, skeletal visage that signals to Mark Wahlberg (in the film) he is entering forbidden yet sacred territory.
