The Pulitzer Prize-winning and world-renowned political cartoonist, Herblock, was a fan of Chuck Jones. So much so, that he called Jones up one day in the summer of 1978 and introduced himself. They spent several hours on the phone and became life-long friends. This is part of letter that Chuck Jones wrote to Herblock a few days after that initial phone conversation.
Dear Herb Block,
Today we salute Hannah Cruttenden and congratulate her on her acceptance into the BFA program at Parsons, the New School in New York City. Hannah took art courses at the Center, was mentored by the Center's teaching artist, Denise Dion-Scoyni, and also volunteered at Center events, workshops, and programs. AND, she won a generous merit scholarship! Everyone at the Chuck Jones Center is very proud of you, Hannah, and wish you nothing but the best in your new adventure.
The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity and LCA Wine at the South Coast Collection are teaming up to offer a delightful and creative evening painting the rich color palette of Italy's' unspoiled and ancient landscape while sipping Tuscan wines and listening to Andrea Bocelli.
Bring a friend and imagine yourselves there just as Michelangelo and Da Vinci once were.
Friday, April 28, from 6 to 9 PM | LCA Wine | 3315 Hyland Avenue | SoCo (South Coast Collection)
