The San Diego History Museum is staging an exhibition dedicated to the art of Dr. Seuss, March 25 to April 19, at the museum in Balboa Park.
Titled “Ingenious! The World of Dr. Seuss,” the show will look at the breadth of Theodor Geisel’s artistic legacy, and will focus on seldom-seen images and artworks he did across nearly eight decades. Some of it celebrates iconic San Diego locations, such as the Hotel del Coronado.
The museum says the exhibits are drawn from public and private collections, including the Dr. Seuss Archives at UC San Diego, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and the Dr. Seuss Estate.
Geisel, who died in 1991, began his career as an editorial cartoonist in the 1920s. His work evolved to comic illustrations, sculpture and oil paintings.
In his hilltop studio, the museum notes, Geisel “forged a new genre of art that falls somewhere between the Surrealist movement of the early 20th century and the inspired nonsense of a child’s classroom doodles.”
Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 6 to 17
