'Breaking Bad' exhibit opening in NYC
For those of you who can't get enough of AMC's "Breaking Bad," we've got two pieces of good news for you. First, the second half of Season 5 is finally premiering tonight (Sunday, August 11), and second, a "Breaking Bad" exhibit is opening in NYC.
It has been a crazy ride watching the transformation of Emmy-award winning actor Bryan Cranston's tormented character Walter White from cancer-stricken chemistry teacher to antihero meth kingpin, and now the Museum of the Moving Image is putting that on display in the recently opened exhibition "From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White's Transformation in 'Breaking Bad'," on view through October 27th.
The costumes and props used on the show that have become synonymous with the iconic characters will be on display. In the exhibit you can see Walter's yellow Oxford shirt, matching Khaki pants, and jacket; the yellow hazmat suits worn by him and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul); and the black hat, pants, jacket, and green shirt he wears when he's "Heisenberg." The exhibition's curator, Barbara Miller, says that the importance of including "shifts in costume color palette and a series of symbolic props" are visual keys to the character's changes.
Selected scenes from the series and behind-the-scenes footage will also be on display. The exhibit, "From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White's Transformation in 'Breaking Bad'," is open from July 26 to October 27.
