To Do Thursday: Secret Seussville

Sam-I-AmWho doesn’t love Dr. Seuss? Theodor Geisel’s rarely seen private work—much of it never intended for children’s storybooks (but still kid-friendly)—will be on display at POPmidtown, an outpost of Pop International Galleries, for the show “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.” Everything in the exhibit, from Cat in the Hat drawings to surreal landscape prints, is for sale, with prices ranging from $350 to $10,000—which should buy you at least one order of green eggs and ham. As the artist said himself: “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”

POPmidtown (in the Atrium of the Citicorp Building), 153 East 53rd Street, (212) 533-4262, 5-9pm, RSVP required.
