Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist
March 15, 2020—September 12, 2021
Downstairs Changing Gallery
From her earliest moments as #1 fussbudget in the early 1950s to the empowered member of the Peanuts Gang 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 Snoopy’s 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.
