tim burton y'all. alright here's the deal, my man tim burton who is kinda entirely responsible for the spiked with lime greatness that is beetlejuice, edward scissorhands, charlie and the chocolate factory and his most recent dent- alice in wonderland has finally let you in, much like willy wonka himself, into the crazy innerworkings of the circus that is his brain.  no golden ticket necessary, just remember this date and show up- an exhibition opens on november 22nd in the MOMA. pretty sure it will run until April you have yourself about 5 months or so, to show your face at his retrospective.  featured will be everything from doodles, props, movie stills, to puppets. puppets... i mean c'mon guys.
