On December 3rd a reception was held at Chapman University's Leatherby Libraries to introduce the Chuck Jones Passageway (third floor) where his "The Master Series" (a portfolio of 11 hand-pulled stone lithographs) is now displayed. The lithographs were donated by Linda Jones Clough and Craig Kausen on behalf of Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. Below each framed artwork, a plaque has been installed that shows the original inspiration for each of Jones' renderings.

In honor of Chuck Jones' love of bowties, the male staff members of the library all sported them!
