Downstairs Changing Gallery
All Peanuts fans have a favorite character, storyline, or drawing. What is yours? In this exhibition, Charles Schulz’s wife, Jean, along with some of his family members and close friends will share their favorite strips and the stories behind them. Sometimes it is a particularly clever or humorous punch line, sometimes it is one of the themes that he touched on over the years, and sometimes it is simply a sentimental memory, but with each strip we will learn something about their creative creator, Charles Schulz. Using a display of original strips, books, photographs and ephemera, visitors will learn which stories are the favorites of Schulz’s family and friends. A version of this exhibition was seen at the Snoopy Museum in Tokyo, and visitors were so enthusiastic about it we decided to expand upon the theme.
