--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Peanuts Worldwide:
Starting Sunday, April 8, Paris-based Peanuts fans and public art supporters will be treated to a striking, larger-than-life, abstract geometric Snoopy and Woodstock mural by acclaimed contemporary artist Nina Chanel Abney when her original work pops up unexpectedly on the façade of Le Citizen Hotel.
The mural is not only a nod to the special bond between American artist Charles M. Schulz and the French creative community, it’s the kick-off for Phase One of the Peanuts Global Artist Collective:
A groundbreaking global public art initiative featuring wildly imaginative art by seven renowned artists who honor and riff on the iconic world of Peanuts in murals landing spontaneously on the streets of seven international cities this spring.
1:00pm – 5:00pm
Sunday, April 8, 2018
(The mural will be on display for three months.)
