A&E Briefs: Capstone of Dr. Seuss’s enduring legacy comes to Exclusive Collections Gallery in Breckenridge

The capstone of Dr. Seuss's enduring legacy comes to Exclusive Collections Gallery in Breckenridge

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 has been mounted to artistically highlight the scores of places and eras Dr. Seuss has taken us with his collection of artwork. Throughout a lifelong adventure into "logical insanity," Ted Geisel transported viewers through a visual journey.

In his final book, he gathered his favorite unpublished sketches, pinned them up on the cork walls of his studio and then set about finding a way to make them connect.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. To celebrate the milestone and his body of work, an Oh, the Places You'll Go! Portfolio was unveiled to the public at the San Diego History Center Museum in April 2015. Though the 25th anniversary of his last book was held in 2015, the show's immense popularity and demand has it booked through 2016 at the new Exclusive Collections Gallery (EC Gallery) in Breckenridge from Jan. 15 through Jan. 31.

The show is geared to children, adults and collectors of all ages that love the work of Dr. Seuss. As the featured centerpiece of the exhibition, this limited-edition portfolio takes visitors behind the scenes to experience the Dr. Seuss archives in a way they never could before. Nine 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. Call the gallery at (970) 453-2930.
