Saginaw - On Saturday Dec. 29 Saginaw Castle Museum patrons were given a glimpse inside the life of writer Charles Schulz’s life, for free.
This was the last weekend of the year, and the last weekend for Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang. With so many “lasts” the Saginaw Historical Society and the Saginaw Castle Museum thought it would be nice to offer free admission to help those who are recovering from the cost of Christmas in Michigan.
For 50 years Charles Schultz, the writer, researched, wrote, drew and designed each Peanut strip by adding his dedication, art, wit, and wisdom to each piece that appeared in the daily and Sunday newspapers across the United States. Schultz wrote over 18,000 strips, starting in 1950 with a mere seven papers to now reaching 2,600 newspapers, with over 355 million readers in 75 countries.
The exhibit showcased Schulz’s personal history, his role as an American icon, the inspiration behind Peanuts, and its cast of characters. Each character had its own storyboard which showcased how they got their start and how they evolved through the years. A glimpse into Charles’s home studio allowed patrons to see where Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Woodstock, Pig Pen, and the rest of the Peanuts gang were created while getting a peek into the artist's life.
The traveling exhibit was organized by the Charles M Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, Calif. If you are interested in renting this exhibit for your county Museum, please get in touch with the Schulz Museum.
