Hidden Treasures: Unseen Originals from the Collection (through May 25, 2020)
With nearly 8,000 original Peanuts comic strips in the Schulz Museum’s collection, there are many treasures that have yet to be displayed. Some are strips that have been recently acquired and others haven’t fit into an exhibition theme-until now. In this exhibition, peek into the pillars of Peanuts through never-before-exhibited original comic art by Charles M. Schulz.

Greetings, Charlie Brown! The Peanuts-Hallmark Connection (January 23-July 12, 2020)
In the early 1960s, the Peanuts Gang leapt off the comics page and into households, due in large part to Arnold Shapiro, an early Peanuts fan and longtime editor at Hallmark Greeting Cards who fostered the iconic partnership between the two global brands. Discover the early connection between Peanuts and Hallmark through a display of original prototype sketches by Schulz, product mock-ups, and early Hallmark products.

Plus, visitors will have a chance to dish their own advice straight from Lucy’s psychiatric booth. Sponsored by the Press Democrat and the North Bay Business Journal.
