Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters

Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., and Sun. from March 5-May 28
Time Varies
Art, Museums

The films of Mexican director Guillermo del Toro are filled with beautiful horrors. Walls bleed red clay, monsters taunt hungry children with glistening grapes, and giant steel machines fight aliens in an electric city of the future. His movies range from cult classics to big-budget mega-hits, and include Cronos, Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak, and Pacific Rim. For “At Home with Monsters,” you’ll be able to take a peek into the darkness that inspires him. The show will include paintings, drawings, concept art, artifacts, and other filmmaking ephemera. Items are organized by topic/terror — the occult, monsters, death/afterlife, magic, innocence/redemption — so you may find yourself spooked by some sections more than others.
