Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was an avid hat collector. Secreted away in a hidden closet on the Seuss Estate until now, twenty-six hats out of hundreds have been generously put on display by Dr. Seuss’s widow Audrey. Geisel.
Hats Off to Dr. Seuss! combines never before seen hats with Estate authorized works adapted from Seuss’s original drawings, paintings, and sculpture.
The exhibition reflects Dr. Seuss’s belief that hats were magic. He believed hats to be the accent, or the exclamation point, on a person’ behavior. But most importantly, hats could offer Seuss life-changing inspiration in a moment of writer’s block.
You can see all the tour stops and date at the official Hats Off to Dr. Seuss website.
