The creative teams from our licensee Mighty Fine and retail partners Old Navy and The Gap visited the Museum last week. Patty Timsawat from Mighty Fine had been planning this trip for several months, and she gathered staff from both San Francisco and Los Angeles for the adventure. We love having our licensees and business partners come to the Museum to soak up the art and history of Peanuts. It is a great chance for our partners to understand what we do and why we do it. It all helps to tell the story, even on t-shirts, and I appreciate the effort and coordination it takes to make a trip like this happen. They enjoyed lunch at the Warm Puppy before their visit to the Museum, and ended their time with a pass through Snoopy’s Gallery and Gift Shop.
Here is the group in front of the Colorado Wall in the upstairs biographical gallery of the Museum.
Sparky painted this wall for his daughter Meredith during the short time that they lived in Colorado.
The group also had the opportunity to visit Sparky’s studio across the baseball field. The Museum has an authentic recreation of Sparky’s drawing area. But recently, I began creating a pastiche of Sparky’s home drawing area within his original studio space. Patty, who coordinated the trip is on the far right.
