This exhibition features newly released artworks from the award-winning book, "Secrets of the Deep"
In celebration of the Independent Book Publisher's 2011 award-winning book, Dr. Seuss's Secrets of the Deep: The Lost, Forgotten, and Hidden Works of Theodor Seuss Geisel, we proudly announce an exhibition commemorating this prized volume. The Secrets of the Deep Art Exhibition presents an expanded and reorganized look at Dr. Seuss's artistic legacy with a focus on the extraordinary collection of imagery reproduced from his nearly seventy-year artistic career. This exhibition offers an insider's view of Dr. Seuss's little known private works; the windows to the world of an unassuming genius. Artistically, they embody a magical combination of the person and persona of Ted Geisel and Dr. Seuss and, in many ways, are what one imagines the Good Doctor would create late at night in his hilltop studio. At other times, the imagery and titles stretch well beyond all preconceived notions. In either case, Seuss delivers a feast of visual stunners, dense with ideas. Also featured are artworks and imagery from his most beloved children's books.
As children, we grew up on Seuss's playful verse and zealous imagination. As adults, we realize that Theodor Seuss Geisel is not just an important and innovative 20th-century painter but one of the few artists working in any medium who knows how to make people happy while at the same time inspiring them to think.
