Chuck Jones Exhibit in Texas

The Fort Worth Museum of Science is currently presenting an exhibition of the animation art of Warner Brothers director Chuck Jones.
"Chuck Jones brought to animation an unparalleled talent for comic invention and a flair for creating animated characters with distinctive and often wildly eccentric personalities. Jones perfected the quintessentially suave and wisecracking Bugs Bunny, the perpetually exasperated Daffy Duck, the hapless but optimistic Elmer Fudd, and created the incurably romantic Pepé Le Pew, and the eternal antagonists Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner."
Chuck Jones said, "Eschew the ordinary, disdain the commonplace. If you have a single-minded need for something, let it be the unusual, the esoteric, the bizarre, the unexpected."

"What's Up, Doc?: The Animation Art of Chuck Jones" through April 26 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science in Texas. After that, it will continue at the EMP Museum, Seattle, WA; the Minnesota History Center, in St. Paul, MN, and the Huntsville Museum of Art, Huntville, AL.
