'Breaking Bad' Exhibit to Chronicle Walter White's Transformation
The Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, New York, will host key props and costumes, including Walt’s hazmat suit and Heisenberg’s hat.
Walter White always fancied himself something of an artist, and now he’s getting his own museum exhibit.
AMC's Breaking Bad is headed to Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, New York, which will host "From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White's Transformation in Breaking Bad."
The exhibit, which runs July 26 to Oct. 27, will include props, video and costumes from the hit show. Among the highlights: the porkpie hat, black jacket and pants, and green shirt Walter (Bryan Cranston) wears when he assumes his alter ego, Heisenberg; the tighty whities Walt wore during his first meth-cooking session; and the hazmat suit used in his later cooks.
Also on display will be the infamous pink teddy bear from a fateful 747 flight, as well as the copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass that sent Breaking Bad fans into a frenzy on last year’s season 5 midseason finale.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will appear at the museum July 28 at 7 p.m. for "Making Bad: An Evening with Vince Gilligan." Tickets can be purchased at Museum of the Moving Image or by calling 718-777-6800.
Breaking Bad returns for its final eight episodes Aug. 11.
