Staring Friday, July 26, the Museum of the Moving Image will present “From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White’s Transformation in ‘Breaking Bad’” in the museum’s main exhibition, “Behind the Screen.”

“We are thrilled to present material from this extraordinary and compelling television series, appropriately located in the actor section of the Museum’s core exhibition,” said curator Barbara Miller. “The exhibit explores how ‘Breaking Bad’s’ filmmakers used a variety of visual cues to convey Walter White’s transformation, including shifts in costume color palette and a series of symbolic props, and features many of the key costumes and props that helped communicate White’s character development over the course of the series.”

“Breaking Bad”, which returns to AMC for its final season on August 11, follows the life of Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston. A chemistry teacher who finds out he has terminal lung cancer, the character begins to produce crystal meth as the merciless alter ego Heisenberg in order to make sure his family can survive financially.

Some of the costumes at the exhibit include White’s classic daily yellow Oxford shirt and khaki pants along with the hazmat suit, gas mask, apron and boots used in the show’s meth cooking scenes. Props include those used for White’s cancer treatment and a copy of Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” a regular point of reference on the show.

On Sunday, July 28, the museum will feature a special program with the show’s creator called “Making Bad: An Evening with Vince Gilligan.”

The exhibit will be on view through October 27.
