amoma_logo.jpgToday's New York Times reports that the Museum of Modern Art's Tim Burton retrospective, which ended a five-month run on Monday, drew the third-largest attendance of any exhibition in MoMA's history. That puts Burton in pretty good company. The museum's mammoth 1980 Picasso show had 976,800 attendees, and its 1992 Matisse show had 940,000. Burton got 810,500 visitors. That may not be much by "Alice in Wonderland" standards -- Box Office Mojo reports that worldwide grosses, as of Monday, are nearing $900 million -- but it's impressive by most any other measure.

For Ty's thoughts about the show, back in January, go here.
