The Bonniebrook Historical Society of Walnut Shade is holding a year-long celebration at the Rose O'Neill Museum to commemorate the 100th anniversary of O'Neill's beloved "Kewpie" cartoon characters. Rose O'Neill's original 1909 Kewpie illustrations are on display along with several new exhibits, and her art studio in the reconstructed O'Neill mansion has been reinstalled. A special 100th-anniversary exhibit shows how the Kewpies came to be. Saturday April 25, the public is invited to Bonniebrook for a free Open House and Tea with the Kewpies, including light refreshments and live entertainment including students from Hickman High School in Columbia, Missouri, whose school mascot has been the Kewpie since 1913. Rose O'Neill, the first woman cartoonist in the United States, made Bonniebrook her home for more than 50 years. Bonniebrook is located 8 miles north of Branson on Highway 65, at 485 Rose O'Neill Road in Walnut Shade. For more information call (417) 561-1509 or visit www.roseoneill.org.
