Inside Peanuts: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz celebrates the cartoonistís extraordinary life and describes his creative process and artistic focus.
This exhibition contains reproduction comic strips and preliminary sketches that follow the development of the characters who make up the unique world of Peanuts, quotes by Schulz explaining his art, and selected Peanuts collectibles from six decades. Tear sheets of comic strips by prominent cartoonists who influenced Schulz as a young artist reveal the contrast of Schulzís drawing style to the elaborately illustrated cartoons popular during the early twentieth century. These elements create an experience for visitors that will illuminate the story behind the creation of one of the most popular and influential cartoon strips of all time.
