Peanuts Mural

Five years ago, at the Charles M. Schulz Museum, artist Yoshiteru Otani designed a couple of installations. One of the permanent exhibits that Otani created was the above giant mural, made up of 3,588 dinky, tiled Peanuts strips.

This video here -- despite it being a low res, shakey, home video -- shows how amazing the scale of the thing is. It runs about half a minute.

Above: the artist gives us a sense of scale during construction. Photo taken from these CMS Museum pages that record the installation of the 17 x 22 foot mural.
