Hilbert Museum founder Mark Hilbert has recently acquired some beautiful original production art from the Tim Burton classic "The Nightmare Before Christmas," which was released in 1993 by Disney's Touchstone Pictures. We've curated an exhibition of these works for the holiday season, on view at the Hilbert through January 16, 2021.
