SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Few authors are better known than Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, yet, to this day, his Secret Art and his fantastical Hat Collection are virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Ted Geisel created paintings and collected hats which he secreted away in a hidden closet at the Dr. Seuss Estate. This is the first time ever that Dr. Seuss’s hats have ever traveled outside his home.

In honor of the 75th anniversary of Dr. Seuss’s second book, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, a special 'Hats Off to Dr. Seuss!' Exhibition has been mounted that combines these two secret collections. Audrey S. Geisel, the widow of Dr. Seuss, has generously opened up the Estate’s legendary “hat closet” to allow the public a peek at Dr. Seuss’s hat collection.

These hats, along with the Secret Art, will be on display May 17th through June 22nd in the Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery at 4000 Lake Tahoe Boulevard Suite 23 in South Lake Tahoe. To RSVP call 530.544.4ART (4278).
