Hats Off To Dr. Seuss 

When: Jan. 11-26 2014
Phone: 727-725-1808
Price: Free admission.
Theodor Geisel, aka your childhood pal Dr. Seuss, was a man of many words — with these words, he introduced us to countless inspiring characters and possibly helped define our moral compasses. But he was also a man of many hats. No, really. Over the years, Geisel acquired and collected various hats which he stored in a hidden closet at his estate; it’s finally time these hats come out of hiding for the first time (thanks to permission granted by widow Audrey Geisel) as we honor the 75th anniversary of his second book, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. The traveling exhibit Hats Off to Dr. Seuss makes pit stops to selective venues to show the collection off in style — by that we mean in an old-fashioned steamer trunk at our very own Syd Entel Galleries in Safety Harbor. Visit on the opening night, Jan. 11, 6–9 p.m., to see these hats presented by Jeff Schuffman — a world-renowned Dr. Seuss collection expert. Plus another of Geisel’s “secrets” will be unveiled during the two-week Dr. Seuss exhibit in the section “Secret Art,” which showcases some of Geisel’s original drawings, paintings and sculptures in an adapted and reproduced form. —Mina Abgoon
