The Center is truly thankful to all of the artists and wonderful people who have worked their creative magic to bring this year's Red Dot Auction together!
To top off this Saturday evening, the Center will present three unique live auction items:
- Imagine if you will the sound of splashing fountains, the tinkle of champagne glasses, good friends laughing, standing in the company of a talented visual artist and having conversations about art and creativity. It can be yours when you are the successful bidder on this live auction item. Spend an evening with the painter Mike Kungl and his wife, Dana, at their home and studio in the hills of Orange County. This event, possibly a life-changing one (you may walk away thinking of becoming an artist), is good for you and up to nine of your friends and is supplemented by a $1000 gift certificate from 24 Carrots catering donated by Jon Brown and Norm Bennett, the owners of 24 Carrots.
- A Super Colossal Bugs Bunny Drawing Lesson! Learn to draw Bugs Bunny in the THE CHUCK JONES style. Art director of “The Little Mermaid” and many other important Disney Studio films, Mike Peraza will sit down with you one-to-one and teach you to draw Bugs Bunny from his chubby wittle feet to his big pointed ears. At this personalized drawing lesson Mike will share with you drawing techniques he has developed in his over 40 years of Disney and Warner Bros. feature animation, along with his work in television, book, comics, and theme park design—can you say “Cars Land”? Mike will not only teach and guide you on your drawing of Bugs Bunny but will also do an original Bugs Bunny drawing just for you. Your lesson, scheduled at a mutually convenient time, can take place here at the Center or at Mike’s studio in Burbank. This special package also includes several DVDs of Disney feature films that Mike has worked on. And to tie the entire experience right back to the Father of Bugs Bunny, you will also receive an original sketch of Bugs Bunny by none other than Chuck Jones himself!
- A tisket, a tasket, a bright yellow basket stuffed with all sorts of goodies--tickets for four to the July 6 performance at the Hollywood Bowl of “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony”, a picnic dinner, along with two bottles of wine, special Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote goblets, a Jones family-owned Levi jacket from the Warner Bros. Studio Stores. Plus you’ll go backstage after the performance with Linda Jones Clough to meet the conductor and creator of “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” George Daugherty. You’ll be skipping all the way to Hollywood! Also, you'll receive "Bugs Conductor" hand-embellished by Linda Jones. This fine art reproduction on canvas resides in some of the great symphony halls around the globe that have been the venue for performances of "Bugs Bunny at the Symphony."
