Pavilion Spotlight: Suess Falls

Posted: Updated:

The characters come in all shapes and sizes, and each one makes you giggle and shake your head in wonderment. Theodore Seuss Geisel sure had an interesting sense of humor.

"His Dad used to work at a zoo and (he) used to bring home dead animals or dead animal parts and Theodore used to piece them together," said David Merhib, the Director of the Visual Arts Center.

A writer, poet, and illustrator, Geisel's work goes far beyond the many pages of this Dr. Suess books.

"So, that everyone can see not only what he did with his figures and in his storybooks, but also his secretive works. And, we have a number of works that have never been shown to the public in this capacity before," said Merhib.

Three years ago, the Washington Pavilion made a bid to host this massive exhibit that spans the VAC, the Science Center, and the Performing Arts Center.

"Since the Science Center and the VAC really see different audiences we wanted to bring it together," said Merhib. "And, by bridging that gap we're going to see everyone from a toddler all the way to the older generation that wants to see some of his artwork that isn't normally shown to the public. So, our range is really broad."

From seeing the odd taxidermy in the Science Center to viewing the secretive fire art in the VAC, this exhibit, lovingly called Seuss Falls, is one you don't want to miss.
