"Pigskin Peanuts" & "Heartbreak in Peanuts"

Clinton Presidential Center

In honor of the 65th Anniversary of Charles Schulz's Peanuts, the Clinton Center - in partnership with the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, California – celebrates the life and legacy of the creator of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy and the entire Peanuts gang. "Pigskin Peanuts” features Schulz's football-themed Peanuts comic strips. It also highlights how Charles Schulz often explored the theme of fairness in his comic strip and believed in giving everyone equal opportunity. "Heartbreak in Peanuts" underscores the prevalence of love in the comic strip. Both exhibitions feature reproductions of Charles Schulz's original Peanuts strips, student activities within the exhibition, 5–foot sculptures of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and themed objects and ephemera.
