At the MSI, it's the Charlie Brownest
Following in the footsteps of its very popular — and not particularly scientific — Dr. Seuss and Jim Henson exhibitions, the Museum of Science and Industry now gives Chicago a show devoted to comic artist Charles Schulz and his great, enduring creation, the newspaper comic strip "Peanuts." The show will include biography, a recreation of Schulz's drawing studio, and many examples from the strip. A special emphasis is said to be placed on the impact of "Peanuts" on popular culture. The requisite interactivity will come in the form of a piano, like Schroeder's but bigger, and in chances for kids to do their own drawing.
