"40th Anniversary of Peanuts in Finland"
1999-11-06 until 2000-01-09
Helsinski City Art Museum
Helsinski, , FI Finland

The exhibition It was a dark and stormy night... will open at the Helsinki City Art Museums galleries in the Tennis Palace on November 6, 1999, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Peanuts in Finland. The exhibition includes some 30 original Peanuts strips and lithographs by Charles M. Schulz (b. 1922), the creator of Peanuts, and an enlarged replica of Snoopys famous doghouse.

Published in some 2,600 magazines and newspapers around the globe, Peanuts is one of the most popular comics in the world. With the first Peanuts strip published in the USA in 1950, It was a dark and stormy night... will also herald the comic stripís 50th anniversary year. From the very beginning, Charles M. Schulz has been single-handedly responsible for all ideas and artwork for Peanuts, and he still creates new strips seven days a week.

The originals shown in the exhibition were selected by Charles M. Schulz from works made between 1987 and 1999. The replica of Snoopys doghouse is actually an exhibition in itself: visitors can step inside and view objects that bring out the many-sided personality of this rather human dog.

The It was a dark and stormy night... is produced in collaboration with the Ilta-Sanomat newspaper, the first to run a Peanuts strip in Finland (1959). In connection to the exhibition, Ilta-Sanomat will publish a special Peanuts insert which will also be available at the Helsinki City Art Museum.
