The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa celebrated its 15th anniversary over the weekend. Reporter Steve Mencher dropped in before the party to visit one of his favorite Peanuts characters, subject of a new exhibition…

This life-sized doghouse wrapped in tarpaulin, polyethylene, and ropes, was presented by artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude to Jean Schulz for permanent display at the Museum 25 years after Schulz tipped his hat to them in a 1978 strip.
