The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art will present the Art of Warner Bros

The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art will present the Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons, an exhibition of original artwork from the world of Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies from Nov. 17 through Jan. 13. Visitors will see actual production work drawings, paintings and cels used in making some of the classic Warner shorts from 1930 to the early 1960s. The pieces in this exhibition are visual icons that explore the elaborate creative process that supported the making of these masterpieces of humor and satire. The exhibit is an overview of a legendary Hollywood animation studio, the rambunctious birthplace of characters that have become part of American folklore. Since their debut in 1930, the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies of Warner Bros. have delighted audiences young and old with their wit and sophistication. So familiar are the antics of the characters that such phrases as Sufferin Succotash! and Acme have become part of the national vocabulary. The Brooks is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For exhibition information, call 544-6200.
