Tim Burton: Artist & Film Director

Most of us by now have experienced the world of Tim Burton. Whether it was in Batman (89, 92, 95), Edward Scissor Hands, or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), chances are you have purchased a ticket to one or more of the movies in his amazing filmography. Currently at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City there is an exhibition on Tim Burton. I would absolutely love to hop on a plane and go to New York (on a regular basis if I could) to visit some of the greatest museums in the world, but when traveling to New York is not an option, we must find other ways to be a part of the events. One thing I enjoy most about how we share information today is how we can visit somewhere without leaving the comfort of our computer chair. Yes, you may not experience everything a place has to offer, but technology can open doors to create more interest and opportunities. Whether I am looking for something to do locally, planning out a vacation, or viewing an exhibition that I cannot attend, looking online gives us options that never existed. Thanks to the wonderful MOMA website, we can get a taste of the Tim Burton show. You have to check out this site! Not only does it let you experience a lot of his work and learn about who he is, but the website has to be the best I have ever seen. See for yourself! I promise you won't be disappointed.

While you are there, expect to get side tracked, but don't forget to click on the family activity guide.
