Hats off to Dr. Seuss!

February 6th, 2013 by melissa y.

Inspired by the 75th anniversary of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Random House Children’s Books and Dr. Seuss Enterprises are jointly putting on an exhibit of Ted Geisel’s (aka Dr. Seuss) classic collection of hats.

According to a press release, “Dr. Seuss was an avid hat collector known to wear one of his crazy hats for inspiration while writing, and at dinner parties, it was often a tradition for each guest to wear a hat.  In his artwork, as in his personal life, Dr. Seuss saw hats as transformational. From the time he was a small boy in  Springfield, Massachusetts, he was aware of the inherent magic in hats… the exhibit will tell the story of what hats represented for the iconic man of many hats.”

So those of you in the greater New York City area, hurry up!  The exhibit is currently at the New York Public Library (Children’s Center at 42nd Street) until Feb 11th and then it goes on tour to 15 different places throughout 2013.  For a complete list of places and dates, visit the exhibit website.
