Dr. Seuss & The Art of Invention
October 13, 2011 - January 8, 2012 |
Let loose with Dr. Seuss!
There's no doubt you'll be amazed by "the thinks you can think" when you explore the mind and ideas of Theodor Seuss Geisel, the creative genius better known to millions and billions as Dr. Seuss. There’s Fun to Be Done! Dr. Seuss & The Art of Invention examines the singular imaginative force behind a bevy of fanciful people, places, creatures and things beloved by generations.
This temporary exhibit celebrates the life and art of Dr. Seuss, chronicling the common artistic links appearing in his work. See his multi-faceted talent at work through this collection of early editorial cartoons, drawings, advertisements, paintings and sculptures. Then get ready for whimsical, hands-on activities that focus on Dr. Seuss’s innovative thinking. Play with Oobleck, the very muck that runs amuck in Seuss's Bartholomew and the Oobleck. (Please, no geese allowed.) Invent your own contraption using Seussian wheels, horns and tubes. Kids and adults alike will have a blast letting their imaginations run wild!
Even if you don't know Thing One from Thing Two, you'll be happier than a Glunk making Glunker Stew when you visit There’s Fun to Be Done! Dr. Seuss & The Art of Invention!
