If I Ran the Zoo, a compelling selection of limited edition artwork from The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection, will be on display Father’s Day weekend at Ocean Galleries in Stone Harbor, NJ, featuring his little-known Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy. Noted Dr. Seuss expert, Jeff Schuffman, will share insight on the exhibition during receptions 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Saturday, June 17 and 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 18, 2017. Eighty years have passed since Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, produced what he called his “Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy,” an amazing menagerie of Seussian animals often constructed from real animal beaks, antlers, horns, lions’ teeth, rabbit ears, and turtle shells. Celebrating the release of Dr. Seuss’s Powerless Puffer - the final Marine Muggs cast-resin sculpture in the Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy - a traveling exhibition is being launched to feature all 17 of these incomparable artworks. This new exhibition, If I Ran the Zoo, marks the first time all 17 sculptures have been presented together in an exhibition dedicated to Dr. Seuss’s sculptural heritage. The exhibition highlights Dr. Seuss’s little-known sculptural legacy and spotlights the fascinating correlations between his two-dimensional artworks and three-dimensional sculptures. The exhibition will also feature rarely seen estate authorized limited editions from the Secret and Archive Art Collections. All sculptures and artwork will be available for acquisition. If I Ran the Zoo opens Friday, June 16 and runs through Monday, June 19, 2017.


Free & Open to the Public with ALL Artwork Available for Acquisition.
