Mr. Peanut, Tony the Tiger, the Aflac duck, the Jolly Green Giant, and hundreds of other advertising icons will soon be housed in a Kansas City, Mo., museum honoring their contributions to American culture. Construction began last week on the Moshe Safdie-designed Advertising Icon Museum, which is scheduled to open in September 2007 as part of a $100 million mixed-use development.
