Theodor Geisel, Dr. Seuss, is known and loved around the world for his children's books, but until now few were aware of the true breadth of Geisel's artistic legacy.
To kick off its 2015 celebration of the Balboa Park centennial, the San Diego History Center opened an exhibit celebrating San Diego's renowned local author called "Ingenious! The World of Dr. Seuss."
The exhibit features rare and never before seen artworks by Geisel, some inspired by San Diego locales.
“Many locals know that Dr. Seuss lived here, and while they have read his books many have not yet seen his art,” said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. “This exhibition will show the community another fantastical side of Dr. Seuss.”
"Ingenious! The World of Dr. Seuss" runs through the end of 2015.
The history center’s "Celebrate San Diego!" exhibition line-up also includes: "Masterworks of the Exposition Era," featuring renowned artwork displayed at the 1915 Exhibition; "San Diego Invites the World," a multi-media commemoration of the 1915 Exposition; and a new documentary film on the history of Balboa Park, funded in part by the San Diego Tourism Authority and the San Diego Tourism Marketing District.
