Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist
March 15, 2020—September 12, 2021
Downstairs Changing Gallery
The year 2020 marks the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment in the United States, which granted women the right to vote. In honor of this historic anniversary, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center celebrates the leading lady of Peanuts, Lucy Van Pelt. From her earliest moments as #1 fussbudget in the early 1950s to the empowered young lady who embodied the movement toward equality in the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond, there is no mistaking Lucy. Whether she’s sharing sage advice from her psychiatric booth, contemplating against Schroeder’s piano, or running from dog lips, Lucy can be counted as crabby, bossy, or even rude at times. But, within it all, there is a young lady who is confident, compassionate, and ready to tackle anything—literally! Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist features original Peanuts artwork, never-before-seen material from the Museum archives, and much more. Plus, visitors will have a chance to dish their own advice straight from Lucy’s Psychiatric Booth.
