The Mattatuck Museum located on 144 West Main Street just off the Waterbury Green is hosting anew exhibition from May 20 - August 13 that will feature the Peanuts characters.  

 Love is everywhere in Peanuts—Charlie Brown loves the Little Red-Haired Girl, Lucy adores Schroeder, Sally pursues Linus—but sadly these sentiments are rarely returned.

Museum goers will experience the joys and sorrows of unrequited love Peanuts-style in the traveling exhibition, Heartbreak in Peanuts. Join the Peanuts characters as they continually return to their hopeless quests for love, undaunted by defeat.

The exhibition presents 50 high quality digital reproductions of original Peanuts comic strips which focus on narratives of lost love. The opening reception will be held on May 21 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  The Mattatuck Museum is open Tues. - Sat 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sun. 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Heartbreak in Peanuts is organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, California.
