BATON ROUGE, LA — The LSU Student Union Art Gallery is interested in hearing from local collectors or enthusiasts who have Looney Tunes games, toys, or Warner Bros. memorabilia that they would be willing to loan the gallery for the upcoming summer exhibit What’s Up, Doc?: The Animated Art of Chuck Jones.
