One Year Anniversary Exhibition, Peanuts Gang All Stars, opens April 22
“I’ve always believed that you not only cast a strip to enable the characters to do things you want them to but that the characters themselves by their very nature and personality should provide you with ideas. The more distinct the personalities, the better the feature will be. Readers can then respond to the characters as though they were real.”
– Charles M. Schulz

Peanuts Gang All Stars, the new exhibition on view April 22, 2017 through September 24, 2017, highlights the main Peanuts characters and the fun ways Snoopy interacts with them. The exhibition, featuring 80 original comic strips, in addition to early works and vintage merchandise, will delight fans as they get to know the Peanuts Gang and their relationship with Snoopy.
“Anyone involved in anything creative has to be putting a lot of himself into it. I would say all the characters are me in one form or another. It would be impossible for me to think up the sarcastic things Lucy says if I weren’t sarcastic myself in the very same way. And there’s a lot of Charlie Brown in me, or should I say of me in Charlie Brown.” – Charles M. Schulz
Peanuts Gang All Stars is the third exhibition offered by Snoopy Museum Tokyo, a temporary museum open for two and one-half years and the first museum outside of the United States dedicated to the art of Charles M. Schulz. Its founding museum—Charles M. Schulz Museum—is located where Schulz lived in Santa Rosa, California.
