Make a New Year’s Resolution: Give the Gift of Time

“The only thing you can give a child is time.” –Chuck Jones
What if that gift of time Chuck speaks of were something you could give throughout the year? The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is looking for a few, highly motivated people to help make the Center’s vision come true.
“The future belongs to the creators, the empathizers, the pattern recognizers, and meaning makers.” 
–Daniel Pink
The Center’s primary goal is to inspire the creative mind and to provide an opportunity to become more aware of the existence of creativity in an individual’s life and as a whole throughout society.

“Humanity is going to require a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive.”
–Sir Ken Robinson 
With the help of our dedicated staff and volunteers, the Center funds and supports a variety of programs and events to make creativity a magical part of everyone’s life. With the support of inspired and inspiring volunteers, our plans for the future will take off and become a reality.

“It is not only ‘good’ to move from passive consumption to active innovation, it is vital. It is not too broad to claim that the future of mankind depends on developing our creativity ‘muscle’…like all muscles, if we don’t use it, we lose it, and many of us have not been asked to use it.”
–Chuck Jones

Image of the Day: Opticular Successimus


"Opticular Successimus" is a hand-painted cel art edition created from an original line drawing by Chuck Jones.  We believe it to be the only time that Wile E. Coyote has ever captured the Road Runner (in real time and not in a dream) using his ACME spectacles. 

That reminds me, it's time for an eye exam, how about you?

“I see nothing in the Coyote that I can’t find in almost any
human being.  Most of us share his desire
for something small and special, be it diamonds, doughnuts, or Road
Runner.  Wile E. Coyote devotes enormous
ingenuity and energy to chasing the Road Runner.  People wonder what good it would do him to
catch the Road Runner, as there’s obviously very little food on that scrawny
frame.  A rabbit would seem to be more
nutritious prey, but Wile E. considers roadrunner to be a luxury item on the
coyote’s food chain.  There are
delicacies as yet unknown to the human palate, and one of them is this
apparently succulent avian." –Chuck Jones
