POP Gallery, Lake Buena Vista, FL – Twenty-five years have passed since Dr. Seuss’s last book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was published in 1990. In honor of this milestone, a special exhibition is being mounted to artistically highlight the scores of places and eras Dr. Seuss has taken us with his incomparable collection of artwork. Throughout a lifelong adventure into “logical insanity,” Ted Geisel transported viewers through an astonishing visual journey they never dreamed possible.
In his final book, Ted gathered his favorite unpublished sketches, pinned them up on the cork walls of his studio and then set about finding a way to make them connect. The result was the most powerful graphic work he had done in many years.
Nine expertly crafted works, adapted from Dr. Seuss’s original concept drawings for Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, are presented within a specially made collector’s edition case, which includes an introductory letter from Audrey Geisel, a rare photograph of Ted in his studio with images from the project, and excerpts from his original manuscript. Join us and be one of the first to view or acquire this grand collection of artwork.
The Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Exhibition will be featured at POP Gallery in the Downtown
Disney® West Side, August 22, 2015 through September 3, 2015. A special opening reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, August 22nd, 5:00-9:00PM.
As part of her February 2015 letter accompanying the Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Portfolio, Mrs. Audrey Geisel writes: He was taking everything he knew and putting it into the life-voyage of this particular little boy. Ted is indeed the boy in the pajamas in Oh, the Places You’ll Go! This portfolio, published on the 25th anniversary of Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, is the capstone of his enduring legacy. – Audrey Geisel
