His Teacher Remembers Tim Burton

While preparing for the exhibition Tim Burton, opening this weekend at LACMA, we had the opportunity to join colleagues from the Museum of Modern Art for an interview with Doris Adams, Burton’s high school art teacher. She can still recall exactly where he sat in her classroom.

Ms. Adams says that the young Mr. Burton stood out for his talent and imagination–and that he was a quiet, thoughtful student.

For more video interviews with Tim Burton himself, check out the handheld tour of the exhibition, for rent when you purchase tickets.
