Description

July 27, 2017 through January 14, 2018 | Upstairs Changing Gallery

In spite of his popularity with fans, Pigpen was featured in just over 100 of the 17,897 Peanuts comic strips that Schulz created. Generating new storylines suited to Pigpen’s messiness proved challenging for Schulz, who explained, “Usually, I just run out of ideas for him, but somehow he keeps hanging in there.” From his 1954 debut, to his last appearance in 1999, Pigpen evolved in the way that Schulz portrayed his dirtiness. Through a display of original sketches, comic strips and ephemera, discover the creative ways Schulz brought Pigpen, with his cloud of dust in tow, into the world of Peanuts.
