Type: Museums And Exhibits, Family Friendly
Visitors first have an opportunity to learn more about Chuck Jones through a short film presented in a cleverly designed ‘movie theater’. From there the exhibit leads them through Animation Alley and into art exhibits not only from the permanent collection of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity but also from other animation studios. In the Acme Workshop, located in the center of the exhibit, visitors have the opportunity to work the Foley station where they can contribute sound effects to a film, do voice-over work and learn to ink and paint real animation cels.
Through exhibitions of rare, original art from the Archive of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, museum-goers learn about Jones’ early childhood and how his talents (and those of his artist-siblings) were nurtured by his parents and how that way of encouraging artistic growth influenced his own methods of creating such world-famous animation characters such as Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner and Pepé le Pew. One of the fathers of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, Jones also created some of most beloved television specials of all time, ones that now resonate with young families around the globe such as “Rikki Tikki Tavi” and “The White Seal”.
