We paid a visit to the Charles Schultz museum in Santa Rosa over the weekend for a closer look at the creator behind the beloved Peanuts comic strip. The museum boasted special exhibitions and impressive, larger-than-life installations like the Peanuts Tile Mural by Yoshiteru Otani, seen above and below. The permanent installation depicts that famous football scene with Lucy and Charlie Brown and is made out of 3,588 comic strips printed on individual ceramic tiles. One of my favorite parts about the experience was going through the wonderful comic strips Charles created over his 50 year career. The magic in the characters he created expressed feelings of hope, insecurity, and self-deprecating humor, honest emotions every human being goes through in life. Maybe that's why I like them so much.
