The Art of Dr. Seuss – 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM – (CV Art and Frame, 110 S Main St, Zionsville, IN 46077) — Opening Reception: Friday, November 22nd – 6 pm to 8 pm — Children’s Storytime: Saturday, November 23rd – 2 pm to 3 pm — For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss’s illustrations have brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds. His artistic talent went far beyond the printed page and yet, to this day, his Secret Art Collection is virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) created paintings and sculpture which he secreted away at the Dr. Seuss Estate. Each of these Estate-Authorized limited editions has been adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Additionally, each work displayed bears a posthumously printed or engraved Dr. Seuss signature, identifying the work as an authorized limited edition commissioned by the Dr. Seuss Estate.
