Glenn Shadix and Tim Burton at MoMA
Tim Burton hosted several hundred of his friends and collaborators at a special preview Monday Nov 16, 2009 at The Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. It was loving gathering of the folks who have worked with Tim over the course of his still blooming career. This amazing installation included work dating back to his High School days in Burbank. I arrived at MoMA with my nephew, Sam Teer, who is a senior, majoring in Graphic Arts, at The Alabama High School of Fine Arts, long time friend and mentor, director and founder of The Tennessee Williams Festival In Provincetown, David Kaplan and Nine Moon Productions associate, Joel Olgesby.

The collection of Tim's work was truly astounding. This MUST-SEE installation runs until mid April 2010. We all moved to an elaborate party at The Russian Tea Room after two hours of viewing Burton's art.

I am preparing a more detailed BIO TALE when time permits. Just got back from New York and wanted to share the joyous time we all enjoyed. Our Boy from Burbank has, indeed, been most prolific in the 22 years we have been friends. I glowed with pride and simply had fun with dear friends from my time in Hollywood.
Heard great reports about my work in FINDING GAUGUIN from Cherry Vanilla who saw a recent screening in Hollywood. Cherry is known as the Fairy Godmother of Pop Culture and is a loyal and trusted friend of so many in the crowd that gathered at MoMA.

There will be much more in the BIO TALE I plan to upload before the end of the year. Appeared in a documentary for TRUTH WINS OUT which we shot on the terrace at Hotel Metro. So much more to tell but am in the midst of planning a big Thanksgiving at TUNE FARMS. My dear friend Diane Tune and her apprentices as well as close friends and family are gathering on her huge farm an hour north of Birmingham. Happy Thanksgiving All!!!!!
This last picture is my dear nephew and amazing artist, Sam Teer.
