Chuck Jones Center for Creativity Expresses Gratitude

Oscar sign tca

Tempe Center for the Arts: "Chuck Amuck: A Legacy of Laughter" exhibit

Late in his life, Chuck Jones began to receive long
overdue accolades for his prolific body of work.  These included a film
retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of the Moving
Image, London (for which he created, on-site, a multi-story mural of his
much-loved Warner Bros. characters,) and an interactive art exhibition at the
Capitol Children’s Museum, Washington, D.C.   And of course, there have been
multiple film festival tributes world-wide honoring the man who brought you such
classic animated fare as “What’s Opera, Doc?” and “The Dot and the Line.” 

But, for the first time, his art (drawings, paintings,
writings) and his life (photos and ephemera) along with his film work have been
the focus of an exciting triple-site retrospective, lovingly constructed and
executed by the amazing curatorial staffs of the Tempe Center for the Arts
(Chuck Amuck:  A Legacy of
Laughter)
, Tempe Public Libraries (The Books of Chuck Jones:  Black and White and Read
All Over),
and Sky Harbor Airport Museum, Phoenix (Chuck Jones:  An Animated Life).  Their
obvious love for Jones’ work, along with their creative energy and
professionalism, has made these exhibitions a must-see event for Chuck Jones
fans around the globe.

product.   Here is a list of those who worked so hard to make these exhibitions
so beautiful and so successful.
