Book 70 Years: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz
Charles Monroe Schulz brightened the world for 50 years with his Peanuts comic strip, and 2020 marks the 70th anniversary since it debuted. With Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the lovable Peanuts Gang, Schulz explored the emotional territory of friendship, disappointment, faith, and tolerance. He was an artist and a storyteller who transformed images of everyday life into art that captured the humor, vulnerability, and dignity of the human spirit. Through Peanuts, Schulz connected people everywhere with his drawings and stories. 70 Years: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz explores Schulz’s personal history and his role as the sole inspiration and artistic talent behind Peanuts and its unique cast of characters.
The exhibition follows Schulz from his Minnesota roots to his life in California and tracks the development of the characters that make up the unique world of Peanuts. Thirty Peanuts comic strips, Schulz quotes, and photographs illuminate the story behind the creation of this most popular and influential cartoon strip.
This ready-to-reproduce digital exhibition package contains high-resolution digital files of original Peanuts comic strips, graphic elements, thematic text, and installation instructions.
