Peanuts . . . naturally
The Kenosha Public Museum will host a new exhibit starting on Saturday, January 26th. It’s called “Peanuts . . . Naturally.” Featuring the comic cartoon artwork of Charles M. Schulz, it’s a light-hearted look at Schulz’s exploration of the natural world through Peanuts comic strips, videos, objects, and interactive stations. The exhibit will be on display in the Touhey Gallery until April 28th. There are also Peanuts items for sale in the gift shop.
In conjunction with the exhibit, there are several programs being offered:
- On Saturday, February 9th, the Kenosha Public Museum will host the “It’s Valentine’s Day, Charlie Brown!” event. From jazz to ragtime to pops, Preludio Strings sets the mood with music.

Tickets are $20, or $15 for Friends of the Museums.
