The Secret Hat Collection Of Dr. Seuss Goes On Display

Over his life, Dr. Seuss collected hundreds of amazing hats. Now Hats Off to Dr. Seuss! has collected some of them in an eccentric art exhibit.

Posted on

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.

The exhibition is currently stopped at the Dennis Rae Fine Art gallery in San Francisco until March 31st. It then moves on to Art on 5th gallery in Austin beginning April 6th.

You can see all the tour stops and date at the official Hats Off to Dr. Seuss website.
