Seuss1This exhibition is the 75th anniversary celebration,

With wonderful artwork displayed in commemoration,

Of Dr. Seuss’ “The 300 Hats Of Bartholomew Cubbins” book,

Visitors, Seuss-lovers, and collectors will want to take a look.

Few are more well-known in this land or the next

For his artwork, his paintings, and the words of his text

Than La Jolla’s beloved resident, Theodor Seuss Geisel,

Or his Secret Art and all the hats he collected with none the wiser.

Dr. Seuss’s never-before-seen hat collection will be exhibited alongside his little-known Secret Art,

This historic collection has opened the world’s eyes to the part

His unique artistic talent has played in enriching our culture,

All adapted from his original drawings, paintings, and sculpture,

The “Hats Off to Dr. Seuss” exhibition is a rare opportunity indeed

To view his wonderful hats, be they cotton or straw or tweed,

And learn of their impact, more than we’d thunk,

Traveling about in a specially retrofitted old fashioned steamer trunk.

Can you believe it? Tell your bats and rats and cats,

The Guinness Book of World Records record for “most people wearing Doctor Seuss hats”,

Was broken, that’s what I hear,

During its New York Public Library premiere!
