Good Grief! ETSU exhibit takes "light-heart look" at Peanuts

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- A new museum exhibit in East Tennessee is taking a look at the "Peanuts" comic strip and its characters' impressions on the natural world.

The "Peanuts . Naturally" exhibit runs through Aug. 31 at the East Tennessee State University and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum and Visitor Center at the Gray Fossil Site.

A news release says the exhibit "takes a light-hearted look" at creator Charles Schulz's exploration of the natural world through "Peanuts" comic strips, videos, objects and interactive stations.

Visitors will get a view of the universe, trees, birds, weather and gardening through the eyes of characters like Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy. More scientifically oriented stations allow visitors of all ages to learn more about and appreciate the wonders of the natural world.
