How to Hang Light Fixtures From 17′ High Ceilings (or How to Get a Lift Out of Life)

This is Craig Kausen, chairman of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, preparing to install light fixtures at the new (and improved) Center for Creativity in Costa Mesa in advance of next Friday's Red Dot Auction. (That's Friday, May 11th from 6 to 9 PM. You are going to be there, aren't you?)


This is Craig Kausen, chairman of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, operating the 'lift' that allows us to install the light fixtures, change lamps, and generally do anything above the 10' level reachable by a ladder. Did I mention we're a week away from the Red Dot Auction? I did, didn't I, but you don't mind hearing it again, do you? 

This is one of the walls after it had been lit by the fixtures that Craig Kausen had installed. He does excellent work, does he not? BTW, the lift is awesome, one of those gagdets that every man (and woman, for that matter) should have in his back pocket (one never knows when one might need a lift, does one?)

The current Chuck Jones exhibition at the Center includes original drawings, watercolors, and production art from Jones's seven decade-long career. It will be on view the evening of Friday, May 11th from 6 to 9 PM at 3321 Hyland Avenue, Costa Mesa, CA which is the evening that the Red Dot Auction will take place. But you knew that. 

Hope to see you then!

A Day at the Chuck Jones Experience

Chuck Redux had the opportunity to spend this past Monday in Las Vegas working with the people that make your visit to the Chuck Jones Experience memorable.  What a great day it was, too! We spent the whold day talking about Chuck's life, art, and genius. It's always wonderful to hear how his work and life has impacted those who spend most of their waking hours talking with his fans and collectors, in other words, people just like you.

From left, a few of the men and women who make your experience at the Chuck Jones Experience at Circus Circus in Las Vegas memorable: Emi, Joseph, Mike, Eddie, and Jessica. Missing in the photo, but there in spirit are Robin, Veronica, and Paula.

If you haven't "liked" the Chuck Jones Experience on Facebook, please do! Be on the lookout for special offers and news about upcoming art classes and other special events that will happen only in Vegas, baby. (I know, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but I just can't keep my mouth shut about how wonderful everyone is at the Chuck Jones Experience. You'll just have to experience it for yourself!)
