Ocean Galleries welcomes a rare and compelling selection of artwork from 20 years of The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection. Visitors can explore and acquire works from Dr. Seuss’s best-known children’s books, as well as The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, a mind-expanding collection based on decades of artwork that Dr. Seuss created at night for his own personal pleasure.
Perhaps the wackiest and most wonderful elements of the collection are Dr. Seuss’s three-dimensional “Unorthodox Taxidermy” sculptures with names like Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn, the Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, and Sea-Going Dilemma Fish, to name a few. Each of these Estate-Authorized limited editions has been adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Additionally, each work bears a posthumously printed or engraved Dr. Seuss signature, identifying the work as an authorized limited edition commissioned by the Dr. Seuss Estate. All sculptures and artwork will be available for acquisition.
The “Art of Dr. Seuss - 20th Anniversary Celebration” exhibit opens on Friday, July 20, 2018 and runs through Sunday, July 29, 2018. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the collection during special receptions with the show curator and noted Dr. Seuss expert, Jeff Schuffman. The gallery receptions take place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 pm on Sunday, July 22. The exhibition is free and open to the public, with all artwork on display available for acquisition.
