GOOD GRIEF, CHARLIE BROWN! brings together Charles M. Schulz original Peanuts cartoons with work from a wide range of acclaimed contemporary artists and designers who have been inspired by this highly influential and much-loved cartoon.

Unique in its enduring appeal, this exhibition will explore Peanuts’ renewed agency in contemporary culture and society.



Schulz created 17,897 strips during his life, syndicated to over 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries and translated into 21 languages, reaching a truly global audience in an era long before digital communications. Featuring original strips rarely seen in the UK or Europe, the exhibition will celebrate Schulz’s prodigious output and examine his creative process. Through the prism of the lives and musings of beloved characters, including Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and Peppermint Patty, Peanuts addressed themes including art, faith, existentialism, race, war and feminism, crossing social and economic boundaries, and standing as a testament to the power of popular arts.

Objects belonging to Schulz will also be on display, as well as original vintage products and publications, which will expose fascinating stories from some of the most momentous times in modern history and prove the power of Peanuts within popular culture including a ‘Silver Snoopy’ from NASA that has travelled to the moon and back, and badges in support of Snoopy’s presidential campaign.
