MoMA's Tribute to Tim Burton

On Tuesday, November 17th, the Museum of Modern Art in New York celebrated the art and films of Tim Burton while raising money for the museum's immense and ever-growing film collection. The night was a big success. Tim Burton, Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, and Danny Elfman, and Danny DeVito showed up, among other artists and celebrities at the gala benefit (YouTube video from deeplover):

It was a lovely time and Tim was so nice and geniune he told these stilt walkers how great they looked, he ran around security and kept signing autographs.

These characters were especially fun. They showed up at the same time as Danny DeVito and hilarity insued.
