Chuck Jones Exhibit.
The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is pleased to present “Character: Chuck Jones, Artist and Animator” at the Potocki Center for the Arts. The exhibit will feature hand-painted celluloid art editions, fine art giclées, hand-pulled lithographs, and mixed-media work from the fertile imagination and hand of Chuck Jones. Four-time Academy Award recipient and the legendary creator of the Looney Tunes characters Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Pepé le Pew, Marvin Martian, and one of the fathers of Bugs Bunny and Daffy, Jones has been honored worldwide as a creative genius.
The exhibition will explore the relationship between Jones’s fine art figure studies and his animated masterpieces. On display will be examples of work created during the “Golden Age” of animation and contemporaneous figure studies Jones created under the guidance of Donald Graham, longtime figure study professor and mentor at CalArts.
Visit your favorite cartoon characters as they romp and cavort through many of your favorite cartoons such as “What’s Opera, Doc?”; “Duck Dodgers and the 24 ½ Century”; “One Froggy Evening”; and “Robin Hood Daffy.” You’ll be saying “what’s up, doc?” in no time.
