Lots of People Went to See Tim Burton at MoMA

Picasso, Matisse and ... Tim Burton? The Alice in Wonderland director's recent exhibition at MoMA was the museum's third most attended, attracting over 800,000 visitors (even Nate and Jenny wanted to go), bested only by a 1980 Picasso retrospective and a 1992 Matisse show. Lesson: If you want to be a really successful artist, you should consider getting really famous in the movie business first. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
