And what a night it was! Hundreds of cartoon and film fans, along with patrons of the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, New York, came out to preview the stunning new exhibit, "What's Up, Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones. This exhibit came to fruition with a years-long collaboration between the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibits Services, Academy of Motion Pictures, Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, and the Museum of the Moving Image. Possibly the most comprehensive examination of the art and career of Chuck Jones ever mounted, the exhibit will tour through 13 other locations through 2019 (next stop in January 2015 is Fort Worth, Texas.) Look for it at a location near you!Tonight, there will be a special event at MoMI launching an exciting new portal to the world of Chuck Jones. Stay tuned for more details!
What a wonderful morning we had taking a walk-through of the Chuck Jones exhibit before the grand opening gala this evening. It was so wonderful to see Chuck's life and work so beautifully curated and exquisitely exhibited. Thrilling!
