What’s Up, Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones

Opening February 14 – April 26, 2015
For a full program list, download the PDF.

What’s Up, Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones is a new traveling exhibition that reveals the creative genius behind some of the most enduringly popular cartoons and animated films of all time. The exhibition is a partnership between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, and the Museum of the Moving Image.

What’s Up, Doc? examines Jones’ development as a filmmaker and visual artist and showcases many of his most significant films, which come to life on screens throughout the exhibition. 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.
