Traveling Snoopy exhibit lands in Shreveport Louisianna

The Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace exhibit is now featured in Shreveport LA. 

The exhibit comes to Shreveport by way of Rochester, Minn., and will continue to travel around the country until 2010. Jean Schulz is particularly excited about “Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace” because of its wide circulation, in part because the images are digital copies and take on fewer curatorial and travel-related costs.

“I think (Charles) would just be pleased that people wanted to see it and that it’s getting such nice distribution,” she said. “By traveling the reproductions, you can travel them more broadly.”

The exhibit is both entertaining and educational, according to Jane O’Cain, curator of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, Calif. “Charles Schulz explored many aspects of World War I and that era through the Flying Ace’s flights of fancies,” she said. “It gives teachers a way to examine this time period in world history in a non-threatening way.”
