California native Tim Burton is coming home—or at least his art is. On May 29, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open an exhibit featuring 700 drawings, paintings, large-scale Polaroids, puppets, maquettes, costumes and early student films created by the director. Curators have made the silly-spooky environment even more Burtonesque with a soundtrack specially composed by longtime collaborator Danny Elfman. Burton produced seven original works for the show, including a deer-shaped topiary in honor of his cult movie Edward Scissorhands, a 21-foot-tall, many-eyed sculpture called Balloon Boy and a black-lit revolving carousel that dangles from the ceiling. Burton's book signing is on May 28, but there's no rush—appropriately, the exhibit will be on view through Halloween. At 5905 Wilshire Blvd.; 323-857-6000;
