Red Dot Auction IX Call for Artists!

Dear Artists and Friends of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity,

This past year the Center has seen tremendous growth throughout Southern California and around the nation:

  • We now provide after-school enrichment programs in over half of the 24 Irvine public elementary schools.

  • We received a grant from the Newport Beach Arts Commission to provide our signature brain health program, Food for Thought, to local seniors with early onset dementia.

  • We continue our work with young people on the autism spectrum through our collaborations with Autism Resource Mom and the Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

  • We have an amazing partner in Chicagoland whose Chuck Jones Center for Creativity programs have consistently been oversubscribed.

Preparations are underway for the Ninth Annual Red Dot Auction benefiting the programs of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, scheduled for Friday, May 17, 2019.

Today we're writing to ask you to donate a work of art to this year's Red Dot Auction To register to participate,  click here.

The canvas provided will be a 12" square and as in previous years, we ask that you sign the artwork on the reverse.  If you choose the 3D object, we'll provide an 8" 3D "Cre8ive Peeple" in red, white, or black, see below, to be painted and enhanced as you envision, please sign the bottom of the object. 

HOWEVER, you may choose to work in any size canvas, substrate or 3D media you'd like to provide yourself

You may prefer to work on paper or another substrate and that's fine, as long as we can mount it to the 12" square canvas for presentation the night of the event. The artwork should be signed on the reverse so that bidders at this silent auction will not know who has created which work of art.

Won't you share your gifts with us and with the Center's supporters and patrons?  If you will, please fill out the registration form found HERE.  

Canvases are due back no later than Monday, March 27, 2019! Again this year we will bring the Red Dot Auction online for pre-bidding only. This online auction will go live mid-April 2019 and end the evening of Wednesday, May 15, 2019. In order to be included in it, your artwork must arrive no later than March 27, 2019.  

And again this year a commemorative poster, similar to the one shown, will be printed; 30 canvases will be selected to represent this year's Red Dot Auction. Two of the posters will be produced and sold the evening of the event. To be considered for inclusion in the commemorative poster, your artwork must arrive no later than March 27, 2019.


Thank you in advance for your generosity, time, and commitment to the vision of the Center.

Exercise Your Genius!
