Dr. Seuss’ style is unmistakable, and Ted Geisel is leaving a mark all over Atlanta the next few weeks.
Kids can relax and read among turtles in the Seuss exhibition.
The Cobb Symphony and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will both perform pieces inspired by the famous author-illustrator’s work in the next few weeks.
The great highlight, though, will be new exhibition opening this weekend at The Breman Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum shows his political cartooning, then dives into his famous artwork for children.
It has a tone far lighter than the heart-shaking Holocaust exhibition across the hall, but kids and adults can both get a lot out of it. The political cartoons are mostly signed “Tedd,” and show a developing style made famous by Horton and the Grinch.
The second half takes kids (and their nostalgic parents, too) into interactive spaces to make noise like the Whos, to stack turtles ala Yertle, experience their own Butter Battle or step-through a Sneetch star machine.
Geisel's cartoons deal with war and politics...and more.
