Comic Book Jobs: Peanuts

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

PeanutsDo you like the Peanuts? Are you a fan of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and Linus? When you hear Vince Guaraldi's piano do you immediately think Charlie Brown Christmas? Well, there's a job that you might be interested in.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum And Research Center in Santa Rosa, California is looking for a curator. It's a full-time gig and you'll need some museum experience that doesn't just include staring at the exhibits or eating in the cafeteria. The museum is "27,000 square feet which showcases the comic art and legacy of Charles M. Schulz and the Peanuts comic strip collection."

As the curator, you'll be "responsible for planning the exhibition schedule, researching, and writing exhibition text." Some other stuff is required, but details and contact info are at the job listing.

Good luck, job seekers!

Negro Leagues Hall of Fame facing financial trouble

Negro Leagues Hall of FameThe Negro Leagues Hall of Fame is in trouble. Faced with the dwindling economy, the museum is facing the very real threat that they may have to close their doors.

Not being allowed to play in the MLB until Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947, African-Americans began their own leagues as early as 1887 to play the greatest game in the world.

MoMA Features Online Exhibit

MoMA Elastic Mind

Speaking of MoMA, not only are they exhibiting the likes of AT&T and Nokia at the museum, there is an incredible display online. Combining science with design, there are over 300 concepts in Elastic Mind that are translated into physical objects. The purpose, they say, is to “combine research with attentive consideration of human limitations, habits, and aspirations.”

All we know is that spending a couple of hours on the site may not have the impact of seeing the show itself, but it certainly is worth the time. For example, in Collection for the Lonely Man, it includes the Sheet Thief, which winds up the bed clothes to the other side. Others are Cold Feet, Heavy Breather, Plate Thrower, and Hair Alarm Clock that will run hair across the user to wake him.
