On loan from the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library And Museum, this exhibit features two sets of art - preliminary crayon drawings and final pen-and-ink line art from the iconic book, The Lorax, which Dr. Seuss himself considered his finest work.
These will be on display at the NCCIL Gallery through October 12, 2012.
The book, written in Dr. Seuss's trademark whimsical rhyme, tells the tale of a creature who "speaks for the trees." The Lorax wages a courageous battle against an evil creature called the Once-ler, who cuts down trees to make Th-needs, "which everyone needs."
As a part of the opening festivities, the NCCIL will host a fundraiser honoring Lynda Johnson Robb, the first child of late President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife, Claudia Taylor Johnson, known affectionately as "Lady Bird" on June 8, 2012.
