Here are some shots of the installation at the Durango Arts Center. An exciting exhibit that I curated along with Shan Wells which focuses on Ted Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss' process of preparing art for the children's books, political cartoons from the 1940's, and a selection of drawings for the Grinch. The children's book drawings were coupled with the finished books. A reading area has been well used throughout the month. Many school groups have visited, and been guided by our Docents through the exhibit, and then participated in art activities, Seussical The Musical has been playing to sold-out crowds and is a terrific production created by Durango Performing Arts Co. Thanks go out to all of Durango businesses and individuals that helped to support this exhibit generously loaned by the Mandeville Special Collections, located in the Geisel Library, at the University of California, San Diego. The community-wide event will close with a Farewell party November 11, 5-7 featuring a dance performance "Which,Way" at 6:30.
