The Doodles of Chuck Jones Will Be Subject of Museum Art Exhibit

What’s the only thing better than a Chuck Jones museum show?

How about TWO Chuck Jones museum shows? In addition to the previously announced nationwide touring Jones exhibit that begins this summer, the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California is organizing “Chuck Jones: Doodles of a Genius,” which will open next month.

The Bowers show will run between April 26—August 3, 2014, and will contain “original drawings, most never publicly displayed, including a section of 50 so‐called ‘Doodles,’ perhaps best described as coming from one artist’s very far side.” The majority of the drawings in the exhibit are from the private collection of Jones’ widow, Marian, which suggests that there could be some very rarely seen work on display.
