It's kind of rude to write about an art exhibit after it has ended, but this one popped back on the radar at the last minute. "Inside Peanuts: the Life and Art of Charles M Schulz" is a traveling exhibit created by the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. The exhibit focuses on Schulz's life and work as well as the Peanuts characters.
The exhibit also features memorabilia from the five decades of Peanuts. I like the added touch of the comic strip as part of the bag for the Charlie Brown figure. I've also always loved the Sally vinyl figure. She didn't stay a baby for very long, and it has a certain purity.
"Inside Peanuts" is one of five traveling Schulz exibits. The exhibit itineraries can be found here. The "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown" exhibit is scheduled to appear at the Louisville Slugger Museum in November.
