PEANUTS GLOBAL ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Building on the legacy of Peanuts visionary Charles Schulz, Culture Corps brought together seven fine artists compromising The Peanuts Global Artist Collective. The Collective is an unprecedented global initiative bringing the beloved Peanuts characters to life in new and exciting ways for the public to experience, giving the gift of art to everyone. The project launched Spring 2018 with murals in San Francisco, Mexico City, NYC, Paris, Berlin, Seoul, and Tokyo. Continuing into 2019, Kenny Shcarf wrapped a NASA ISS Module in Houston, Texas, AVAF built a 3D Peanuts sculpture in Mexico City, and André Saraiva, Mr. A, installed graffiti-style Schultz tributes throughout Galeries Lafayette in Paris, with additional public art to follow. The Collective received the International Licensing Award for Best Licensed Collaboration for 2019.
Culture Corps is curating, producing, and managing this unprecedented cultural agenda by bringing the important and playful messages of Peanuts to a broader platform through a unique art experience.
This thoughtfully designed program, comprised of immersive and accessible artworks, is created for an audience of all ages and nationalities, exposing a diverse range of artistic knowledge, and could potentially culminate in an exhibition at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. The artists invited to participate will serve as ambassadors for the brand and will give viewers the opportunity to experience Peanuts in a new and exciting way — through the eyes of some of the most important artists of our time.
