At Home with Monsters

Posted Monday, March 27th, 2017 08:40 pm GMT -6 in Art,Design,Movies,Museums at 8:40 PM

When I heard that Mia was doing a Guillermo del Toro exhibition, I immediately thought of Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy and was super excited to go see it. Once I got there, I realized 1) there are a bunch of del Toro movies I’ve never seen and 2) everyone in Minneapolis seems to love the guy – it was absolutely packed.

At Home with Monsters is divided into multiple themed rooms that had a mix of movie props and artwork primarily pulled from his personal collection at Bleak House (his home in Los Angeles). It was easy for me to feel a connection to the director: vintage Disney artwork from Mary Blair (and many others), a comic book wall, Ray Harryhausen props, Marlon Brando bronze bust, Edward Gorey prints and a recreation of his personal “rain room” with an Edgar Allen Poe wax figure. How could I not love all that?

Open now through May 28, get your $20 tickets online here (while they last).

P.S. – Forgot to mention one other thing from the exhibit that really resonated with me: one of the signs said that del Toro was taught from an early age to keep a journal – notes, sketches, keepsakes, souvenirs. This site serves the same function for me – now 7,649 posts and growing…
