The Many Paths of Dr. Seuss: Four Points of the Compass

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art invites you to explore this exhibition of rarely seen original art from Dr. Seuss's first (And to Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street), last (Oh, the Places You'll Go!), and two most politically charged books (The Lorax and The Butter Battle Book). The Mulberry Street drawings have never been exhibited before, having been in private hands until recently, and The Lorax drawings are in the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas-the gift of the artist in honor of Ladybird Johnson's commitment to environmental issues. The art for these two books is the only material not in the Seuss Archive at the University of California at San Diego where the balance of the exhibition originates. The Butter Battle Book addresses the issue of nuclear proliferation, while Oh, the Place You'll Go! has become a perennial favorite during graduation season.

This exhibition is made possible in part by generous support from the Hsin Yi Foundation, Taiwan, Random House, Inc., and The Dr. Seuss Foundation and Audrey Geisel.
