Tim Burton

This is an exhibition of sculptural and digital installations that celebrates Burton’s link to Las Vegas’ historical neon heritage.

These artworks, many of which are site-specific creations, play with the Museum’s landmark sign collection, which was prominently featured in Mars Attacks! Burton’s irreverent homage to the sci-fi B-movies of the 1950s and 1960s and the disaster films of the 1970s unleashed gleefully destructive alien invaders upon gamblers, casino workers and Tom Jones. The presentation of Burton’s art in Las Vegas is a unique experience where the host institution also serves as creative inspiration. The Museum’s distinctive campus is transformed through the artist’s singular vision for this original exhibition.

Members will enjoy advance access to the exhibition before it opens to the public as well as members-only viewing hours.
