A collection of the literary legend’s personal pieces are hitting the road as part a traveling exhibition — and it’s expected to make a prolonged stop in Natick this fall
Step into the creative mind of the infamous Dr. Seuss at LaMantia Fine Art Gallery in Northport, where limited edition artworks from “The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection” are on display. The exhibit, “If I Ran The Zoo” features the artist’s “three-dimensional unorthodox taxidermy.” It’s the first time all 17 sculptures have been presented together in an exhibit dedicated to Dr. Seuss’s sculptural heritage.
The artist forever known as Dr. Seuss didn’t stop at writing and illustrating 44 wise and whimsical storybooks. While he produced popular literature by day, he spent his nights in the 1930s sculpting and painting for his own enjoyment. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss Collection is largely unknown to the world, excepting art specialists and true Seuss enthusiasts. Now, a new exhibition is bringing a curated array on tour for public viewing. They’re available for acquisition, too—in other words, someone could actually take home “The Mulberry Street Unicorn” as a piece, instead of a page.
Smiling goofily from their wooden mounts sit the imaginings of Dr. Seuss, animals with bizarre names like the Turtle-Necked Sea-Turtle, Two Horned Douberhannis, and Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn. The beasts were not designed by fanatics of Dr. Seuss’ famous children’s books, but are based on works created by the man himself over 80 years ago, each originating from an obscure collection of paintings, drawings, and sculpture known as The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss Collection.
A major PR hit for the exhibition. Major. The verified audience metric for this piece in the Huffington Post is over 31 million unique visitors: specifically: 31,021,260 Million unique visitors per month. It is written by Priscilla Frank, the Arts & Entertainment editor for the Huff Post.
