The celebratory activities kicked off with an art project in Houston, Texas’ public parks, downtown business community and NASA campus. Areas will be adorned with Peanuts iconography, which include the unveiling of a drawing of Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz by artist Kenny Scharf that will be wrapped around an 18-foot-by-15-foot ISS Module.

“My husband, Sparky, was always delighted to celebrate NASA’s achievements in his comic strip,” says Jeannie Schulz, widow of Charles M. Schulz. “He would be as pleased as I am to see the stars align again as Peanuts-inspired art meets space exploration in Kenny Scharf’s breathtaking piece. His highly original and whimsical take on Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Gang as they soar through our galaxy is the perfect complement to Space Center Houston’s existing collection of famed space artifacts.”

“The Heavens and the Earth” public art project will also include a series of Peanuts-inspired art murals created by the Peanuts Global Artist Collective and showcased around the Houston area.
