Virtual Tour: Charles M. Schulz Museum

Monday, October 5, 2020

“Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist” – join us for a live guided tour of the museum's current special exhibition, followed by a “How to Draw Lucy” instruction.

Join us for a special live, online guided tour of the Schulz Museum’s current exhibition, "Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist," led by the museum’s education staff.

Timed to coincide with this year’s centennial of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, the exhibition celebrates the leading lady of Peanuts, Lucy Van Pelt. From her earliest moments as #1 fussbudget in the early 1950s to the empowered young lady who embodied the movement toward equality in the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond, there is no mistaking Lucy. Whether she’s sharing sage advice from her psychiatric booth, contemplating against Schroeder’s piano, or running from dog lips, Lucy can be counted as crabby, bossy, or even rude at times. But, within it all, there is a young lady who is confident, compassionate, and ready to tackle anything—literally!

Lucy! Fussbudget to Feminist features original Peanuts artwork, never-before-seen material from the Museum archives, and much more.

Participants will also be treated to a “How to Draw Lucy” instruction following the tour.

About the Charles M. Schulz Museum
Located in Santa Rosa, the museum is dedicated to giving depth to the funny pages through the preservation, display, and interpretation of the life and art of Peanuts comic strip creator Charles M. Schulz. Visitors can view Schulz’s original comic strips, learn about the art of cartooning and Schulz’s role in its development, view a re-creation of Schulz’s art studio, watch animated Peanuts specials and documentaries in the museum's theater, draw their own cartoons in the hands-on Education Room, and more.

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library
