Advance Notice. Tim Burton at LACMA.

A favorite Miracle Mile museum, LACMA, will be hosting a Tim Burton retrospective starting in May of this year and stretching into the end of October this year.

Some of the featured pieces includes art tied to Burton's movies as well as photography and writing that Burton has done.

The exhibit is first traveling to Australia and New York before making it's Los Angeles debut, according to the Los Angeles Times.

From LACMA's site:

On view at LACMA from May 29 through October 31, 2011, the exhibition brings
together over 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, moving-image works,
storyboards, puppets, concept artworks, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic
ephemera, including art from a number of unrealized and little-known
personal projects.

LACMA is also offering a special where with the price of membership museum members get two entry tickets to the exhibit. Those who join at the "patron" level get an invitation to the preview party.
