Everyone has a favorite Peanuts character (mine’s Snoopy), but how much do you know about the creator? Take a trip to the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA, and explore the life and drawings of Charles, M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip.
While you are there, make sure to check out the Pop’d From The Pane Exhibit dedicated to exploring the parallel worlds of fine art and commercial art. Pop’d From The Panel will look at the influence comic strips and cartoon art had on the work of noted artists like Enrique Chagoya, Christo, Ron English, Llyn Foulkes, Gottfried Helnwein, Sherrie Levine, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Pettibone, Mel Ramos, and Wayne Thiebaud.
Admission is free to members, and $10.00 for adults or $5.00 for youth and seniors. The exhibit will feature 26 works by 18 artists. Familiar faces like Superman, Mickey Mouse, and Snoopy are used to tackle topics from personal to political, as artists Mel Ramos, Llyn Foulkes, and Nina Bovasso move them beyond the comic art panels. If you love art and comics, this is the perfect exhibit for you. We guarantee there is nothing like this around!
