If thats the case, then you definitely dont know peanuts about Peanuts, pal, as the long-running comic strip was equal parts existential, subversive, deeply human, and hilarious. Consider taking a second look at an old favorite by paying a visit to Arizona Museum for Youths Peanuts at Bat: The Life & Art of Charles Schulz.
The exhibition consists of 200 Peanuts comic strips from the past 40 years, including a section focusing on the gangs iconic baseball outings, plus plenty of fun for kids and kids at heart who can play Schroeders symphonies at a pint-sized piano, sit at Lucys Psychiatric Help booth (still offering advice for only five cents), or hang out in a glow-in-the-dark Great Pumpkin Patch.
The Schulz-centric exhibition runs through Sunday, September 11, at 35 North Robson Street in Mesa.
Sundays, 12-4 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2011
