If you haven’t done so already, this will be the last week to enjoy “Ann Jackson Gallery Presents The Art of Dr. Seuss at The Gardens Mall”. On display since January 17th, 2016, Sunday, February 14, 2016 will be the last day these extraordinary works of art will be on display at this location.
The Art of Dr. Seuss is the exclusive, authorized collection of limited edition artworks adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, and sculptures. This historic collection has traveled to museums and galleries across three continents since its inception in 1997, with works from The Art of Dr. Seuss now hanging in collections alongside the likes of Picasso, Chagall, Warhol, and other 20th century masters.
The exhibit is open to the public, with no cost of admission, and will run concurrent with The Gardens Mall hours (Monday – Saturday, 10am – 9pm, and Sunday, 12pm – 6pm).
For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss’s illustrations have brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds.
Best known for authoring several of the most popular children’s books of all time, selling over 600 million copies, and being translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death, he also worked as an illustrator for advertising campaigns and as an animator for the United States Army, while also creating numerous watercolor paintings, oil paintings, and sculptures.
“Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Dr. Seuss created a body of irrepressible work that redefines this American icon as an iconographic American artist.”
“The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss often shows a side of the artist that most readers, familiar with him through his classic children’s books, have never seen. These “Midnight Paintings”, along with significant drawings and sculptures, were often created by Dr. Seuss at night for his own personal enjoyment, and were rarely, if ever, exhibited during his lifetime.”
A selection of the limited-edition artworks and sculptures from this exhibit are available for acquisition on-site from the Ann Jackson Gallery. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to support their children’s art outreach programs.
Live musical performances from the Maltz Jupiter Theater with the SEUSSICAL opening production will take place on weekends at 1pm and 3pm in The Gardens Mall Grand Court, while a story hour with readings from some of the best known Dr. Seuss books will take place Thursday at 10am.
