ROSWELL, Ga. – Few authors are better known than Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss. Yet, to this day, his secret art and his fantastical hat collection are virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Geisel created paintings and collected hats that he secreted away in a hidden closet at the Dr. Seuss estate. This is the first time that Dr. Seuss's hats have ever traveled outside his home.

In honor of the 75th anniversary of Dr. Seuss's second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins," a special "Hats Off to Dr. Seuss!" exhibition has been mounted that combines these two secret collections. Audrey S. Geisel, the widow of Dr. Seuss, has opened up the estate's legendary "hat closet" to allow the public a peek at Dr. Seuss's hat collection.

The exhibition delivers a unique opportunity to view Dr. Seuss's superb hat collection and view their direct impact on his works of art. Traveling in a specially retrofitted old-fashioned steamer trunk, this exhibition premiered at the New York Public Library, which was the first of 16 stops across the country.

World-renowned Dr. Seuss Collection curator Bill Dreyer will be on-hand to unveil the hat collection and deliver a captivating talk on the art and life of Dr. Seuss at 7 p.m. during the opening event running from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 1 at Ann Jackson Gallery in Roswell. The collection will be on display through Feb. 16. For more information, visit annjacksongallery.com/.

WHAT: Never-before-seen hats from Dr. Seuss's private collection along with prints and sculpture from the Art of Dr. Seuss collection. www.drseussart.com/hatsoff/

WHEN: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Feb. 1 through Feb. 16
