For the first time in 10 years filmmaker Tim Burton put his artwork on display in America.
"Lost Vegas," an exhibition featuring his works, opened at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas last October and was scheduled to run through April 12th.
The museum is offering the virtual guided tour — their first ever — to give fans a final look at the exhibition on Facebook live at 1PM (PST) on Friday April 10th.
Noting that thousands of art lovers have to miss out on it due to COVID-19, this is the museum's way of showing it off to Burton fans around the world.
The tour will be hosted by education specialist Mitch Cohen, reports Las Vegas Weekly.
The exhibit features large-scale works from the "Nightmare Before Christmas" director and takes advantage of both the museum's indoor & outdoor space.
Neon Museum president and chief executive office Rob McCoy wrote in an email statement that the goal of virtual tour is to share the exhibit with visitors around the world who didn't have a chance amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“The exhibition was scheduled to continue through Sunday, April 12, but with the museum’s temporary closure due to COVID-19, we know thousands of art lovers will miss their chance to see Burton’s outstanding exhibition,” McCoy said. “This live, virtual tour will take place especially for them—and will be enjoyable for anyone who appreciates Burton’s work and iconic Las Vegas sign design.”
The works reflect on his creative legacy and his love for the "neon boneyard," which he popularized in the 1996 sci-fi comedy "Mars Attacks." Two other locations across the museum will have also showcased his work - the North Gallery & the City of Las Vegas' Boneyard Park.
Watch the virtual tour here at 1 p.m. Pacific time.
