"Oh, the places you'll go" and things you'll see this September at the exciting Hats Off to Dr. Seuss! exhibit at Water Tower Place. As part of the national touring exhibition of the famous author's collections, attendees will be treated to a look inside Dr. Seuss's hidden treasures from his estate, on display for the first time. From paintings to towering feathered hats, this display shows off some of the most whimsical creations of the beloved children's writer.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, used his imagination to bring to life so many memorable characters in literature. The Grinch, the Cat in the hat, Horton who heard a Who (and why are green eggs, green?) But, not many fans knew about his fascination with hats. Short hats, tall hats, big hats, small hats -- Dr. Seuss loved them all and they went on to inspire his stories. His collection had a direct impact on his art, and for the first time, fans will get the opportunity to earn a better understanding of that legacy.
In edition to the never-before-seen hat collection, the Hats off to Dr. Seuss! exhibit features his lesser-known Secret Art, a series of works "adapted and reproduced from Geisel's original drawings, paintings and sculpture." The artwork will be available for viewing as well as purchasing throughout the tour.
"You are the guy who'll decide where to go," when you head to the Hats off to Dr. Seuss! exhibit from September 19 - October 12 at Water Tower Place. Admission is free for this family-friendly event for Cat in the Hat fans of all ages!
