Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd are together again, but this time as part of an exhibition titled Carrot Cake: The Life and Career of Chuck Jones running until Nov. 7 in the art gallery on the San Jacinto College South Campus.

Jones, the legendary artist, animator, and director is best known for his work on the “Looney Tunes” shorts while working with Warner Bros. cartoons.

The showcase features original drawings, animation cels, and videos, and coincides with what would have been Jones’ 106th birthday. Bradly Brown, an art professor, and the gallery curator worked with Department Chair Jeff McGee to bring Jones’ work from the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity in California to the South Campus.

The show kicked off Sept. 21 with a reception featuring a serving of carrot cake and a cartoon screening in the Proscenium Theater. Jones’ grandson, Todd Kausen, attended as a guest speaker.

Exhibition visitors can view the evolution of Jones’ extensive work, from his time as a young artist to his tenure as a mature animator with Warner Bros. Mostly, Brown said, he wants visitors to take their time, enjoy the experience, and “interact with the things here.” Unlike traditional museum experiences, he noted, “you don’t have walk in, look at a painting, and leave.”

Carrot Cake: The Life and Career of Chuck Jones will be on display until Nov. 7 in the art gallery (Room 143) of the Flickinger Fine Arts Center (S15) on the South Campus.
