Charlie Brown and the Great Exhibit
explores Peanuts creator Charles Schulz’s personal history and his role as the sole inspiration and artistic talent behind the strip's unique cast of characters. Through original cartoons, reproductions and related Peanuts ephemera, guests will see how characters like Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy were developed and how they evolved over decades in print and popular culture. Schulz’s Santa Rosa, Calif., studio—recreated for the first time on tour—will allow for a deeper look into his work and life. In addition, the exhibit will take guests on a Peanuts tour of the holidays—Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day—during which these characters became so well known.
