"The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss"

Calling all Dr. Seuss fans: Joining the lineup of great new exhibits for summer is a show of Theodor Geisel's private work (much of which sold out in previous editions) called "The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss" at the gallery POPmidtown, an outpost of Pop International Galleries (in the Atrium of the Citicorp Building, 153 E 53rd St between Lexington and Third Aves). It's fascinating to see work of the master that was never intended for children's storybooks—though no worries: There is plenty of that on view as well. All of the work is for sale, in prices ranging from $350 to $10,000. Click through our slide show for a preview of the exhibit, and if you can, bring the kids to the gallery on Thursday, June 13, from 5 to 9pm, when even more "secret" work will be unveiled (R.S.V.P. is required).


"The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss" is on view at POPmidtown through July 6.
