The Museum features a 17 x 22-foot Peanuts Tile Mural by Japanese artist Yoshiteru Otani in the Great Hall. Composed of 3,588 Peanuts comic strip images printed on ceramic tiles, the mural reflects an image of Lucy holding a football for Charlie Brown.
One of the Museum’s most cherished donations, the Nursery Wall is a unique wall of original Schulz art donated by Polly and Stanley Travnicek and includes images of Snoopy and Charlie Brown from Schulz’s formative years.
The Morphing Snoopy Wood Sculpture is another magnificent piece of art designed by Japanese artist Yoshiteru Otani and features 43 shaped and cut layers that reveal the inspiration behind Snoopy and the evolving personas of the canine character, including Spike, Schulz’s childhood pet.
