Friday evening, May 11th, the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity hosted its 2nd Annual Red Dot Auction at its new facility in Costa Mesa at South Coast Collections. A record crowd turned out in all their artistic finery and bidding on the donated original works of art began immediately and continued unabated right up until the final ringing of the gong closing the silent auction portion of the evening. The evening was catered by 24 carrots and was it ever wonderful! Patrons of the Center turned out in full force to show their support for the Center's programs (art classes, exhibitions, lectures, educational outreach, and film festivals) by bidding aggressively on the over 60 works of art donated by artists from around the country. It was heavenly. If you'd like to see more photos, click on Chuck Redux.
