We talked about Hats and about the life of Dr. Seuss in our last blog. Now, I want to focus on the art itself.
The Hat’s Off to Dr. Seuss and The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss Exhibition coming to The Art Shop April 4 – 19 features Illustration Art, Secret Art, his Taxidermy Collection as well as Bronzes honoring Seuss characters.
Seuss’s Illustration Art is exactly as it sounds – the art of Dr. Seuss from the books we read as kids, we read to our kids and now OUR KIDS are reading to THEIR KIDS.
“One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish…” “I do not like that Sam-I-am!” “Hop. Pop. Hop on Pop.”
Unless you grew up under a rock, you know I’m quoting Dr. Seuss. I cannot hear those words without getting nostalgic. Lenny and I could probably recite most of his books by heart twenty-five years or so after we read them to our two children. Now, we love to read them to our granddaughter whenever we see her.
We are very excited to be hosting the “Hats Off to Dr. Seuss” exhibit from April 4 – 19 along with works from the Secret Art of Dr. Seuss collection. In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, this is the first time in history the two collections are presented together. We are highly honored to be one of a limited number of stops for this traveling exhibit.
