The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons in Bozeman September 19
Museum of the Rockies will open its newest exhibit - The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons - on Saturday, Sept.19. The exhibit will run through Jan. 31, 2016.
The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons is a major exhibition of original artwork from the world of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. It is a colorful, comical overview of the rambunctious Hollywood animation studio that created legendary cartoon characters that have become part of American folklore - from Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd to Tweety Bird, Porky Pig, Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner.
See actual production artwork - drawings, paintings, "cells" and more - used in some of the most beloved cartoons from the 1930s to the early 1960s. Works by all of the studio's directors, including Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Friz Freleng and Bob Clampett, now considered the giants of American animated filmmakers, are richly represented in some 165 pieces of artwork and other related art objects.
The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons at Museum of the Rockies will merrily entertain all ages today as much as these memorable cartoons did decades ago.
