One of Santa Rosa’s best arts venues is the Schulz Museum, founded by Jean Schulz, the wife Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. She lost her home in the Tubbs Fire in October, but the museum is fine and it’s hosting a fundraiser for those affected by the North Bay wildfires. Drawing Strength, A Fire Relief Fundraiser, features Santa Rosa artists deeply affected by the fires, including graphic novelist Brian Fies, who lost his home and wrote a moving short comic about the experience that was featured in the KQED Arts video below. Also expected to appear is Santa Rosa resident Stephan Pastis, author of the daily strip Pearls Before Swine, plus Dave Eggers (The Circle), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), and Judd Winick (Hilo: The Boy who Crashed to Earth). Details here.
