NEW TEMPORARY EXHIBIT “PIGSKIN PEANUTS” & “HEARTBREAK IN PEANUTS”
January 17 – April 5, 2015
In honor of the 65th Anniversary of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, we will be hosting two new exhibitions that will premiere at the Clinton Center from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, California. “Pigskin Peanuts” will feature Schulz’s football-themed Peanuts comic strips. It will also highlight how Charles Schulz often explored the theme of fairness in his comic strip and believed in giving everyone equal opportunity. “Heartbreak in Peanuts” underscores the prevalence of love in the comic strip. Students will experience the joys and sorrows of unrequited love Peanuts-style. Both exhibitions will feature reproductions of Charles Schulz’s original Peanuts strips, student activities within the exhibition, 5-foot sculptures of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and themed objects and ephemera.
