The Art of Dr. Seuss National Touring Exhibit

at Barker Animation Art Gallery

May 1 – July 3

Free Admission

Yes, there really was a Dr. Seuss. He was not an official doctor, but his prescription for fun has delighted readers and art aficionados alike. Theodor Seuss Geisel (“Ted”), doodler at heart, will have his art on display at Barker Animation Art Gallery beginning May 1st through July 3rd.

For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss’s illustrations brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds.  However, his artistic talent went far beyond the printed page, as in his “Secret Art” works – the paintings and sculptures he did at night for himself that he rarely exhibited during his lifetime.  Seuss always dreamed of sharing these works with his fans and had entrusted his wife, Audrey, to carry out his wishes once he was gone.

The Clinton Museum has put their collection of Dr. Seuss’ works on national tour.  This tour has opened the world’s eyes to the unique artistic talent of Dr. Seuss and, as such, galleries, museums and collectors have helped make Audrey Geisel’s promise, and Dr. Seuss’s dream, a reality.
