The famous comic Peanuts celebrate its 65th year together with Art+ Magazine, the premier visual art and lifestyle magazine, and SM Megamall at the Peanuts Art land which is also in line with our country’s Independence Day celebration.
13 artists have joined and created contemporary art and a design makeover of Snoopy’s doghouse, a 6-feet tall artwork. Among the artists who participated are fashion designer Rajo Laurel, F3 racer Gabby Dela Merced and Hahan, the painter Dominic Rubio, Presidential Medal of Merit Awardee Juvenal Sanso, the sculptors Toym Imao, Leeroy New, and sisters Olivia and Alexandra d’Aboville, the pop artist who started POPaganda, Ron English, Dae Jae Pa’este, and BJ Pascual.
Snoopy starred in the famous comic strip the Peanuts, who debuted in 1950. It ran from 1950 to 2000, 50 years of comic strip by Charles M. Schuls, its creator.
Charlie Brown is actually the main character of the comic strip but Snoopy is the witty dog who has the heart and a mind of a wise man. The characters are very realistic in a sense of a kid.
Since the opening of the exhibit, many of my friends have been there taking photos and have made it their profile pictures.
The exhibit ran until yesterday at the Mega Fashion Hall, Megamall and all Snoopy doghouses are for sale and proceeds from the exhibit will go to the SM Foundation’s school-building program for kids.
