Peanuts x Hudson Square
Introducing the Peanuts Global Artist Collective:
At the height of its reach, the Peanuts comic strip was featured in 2,600 newspapers, touching the lives of millions around the world. Though Charles M. Schulz stopped short of calling himself an artist, his line, characters, and the emotional stories he told have influenced innumerable authors, filmmakers, songwriters, painters, and sculptors. Among those are the seven fine artists who comprise The Peanuts Global Artist Collective, an unprecedented global initiative in which the beloved Peanuts characters will be brought to life in new and exciting ways for the public to experience, giving the gift of art to everyone. The project launches this spring with murals in seven cities around the world, with additional public art to follow in the fall.
The murals can be seen in San Francisco, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, Seoul, Tokyo and – we are pleased to announce – New York City’s Hudson Square!
