The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection – 20th Anniversary Celebration
Jul 20 @ 10:00 am – 10:00 pm

Ocean Galleries welcomes a rare and compelling selection of artwork from 20 years of  The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection. Visitors can explore and acquire works from Dr. Seuss’s best-known children’s books, as well as The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, a mind-expanding collection based on decades of artwork that Dr. Seuss created at night for his own personal pleasure.

 

Perhaps the wackiest and most wonderful elements of the collection are Dr. Seuss’s three-dimensional “Unorthodox Taxidermy” sculptures with names like Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn, the Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, and Sea-Going Dilemma Fish, to name a few. Each of these Estate-Authorized limited editions has been adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Additionally, each work bears a posthumously printed or engraved Dr. Seuss signature, identifying the work as an authorized limited edition commissioned by the Dr. Seuss Estate. All sculptures and artwork will be available for acquisition.

 

The “Art of Dr. Seuss – 20th Anniversary Celebration” exhibit opens on Friday, July 20, 2018 and runs through Sunday, July 29, 2018.  Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the collection during special receptions with the show curator and noted Dr. Seuss expert, Jeff Schuffman. The gallery receptions take place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 pm on Sunday, July 22.  The exhibition is free and open to the public, with all artwork on display available for acquisition.

Beliefs and Behaviors: Climate Change Gets Personal
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Public perception of climate change remains deeply divided, despite a near-unanimous consensus among scientists that human-caused climate change is a reality. How can we strengthen public understanding of and belief in climate change?

Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz is a widely recognized expert on public opinion and public engagement over climate change at Yale University. He works to understand risk perception and decision making in the American mind and joins The Franklin Institute’s Environmental Scientist Dr. Rachel Valletta for a deep dive into the political, psychological, and cultural factors that influence personal perceptions of climate change.

Moderator:
Dr. Rachel Valletta, Environmental Scientist, The Franklin Institute

Featured Guest:
Anthony Leiserowitz, Ph.D. | Senior Research Scientist at the Yale University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication

Editing Our Evolution: A Community Forum
Jul 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

As gene editing techniques become more refined, the possibility of editing the human genome is moving from science fiction to reality. What should we do with this power?

Many in the scientific community are calling for strict regulations on the use of this technology, while others are excited about the possibilities. Should we create babies who will never know disease? Should we stick to smaller changes, like lowering the rates of breast cancer by eliminating mutations? Or should we call for society to ban human gene editing? Who should decide? How can we maximize benefits from these scientific advances while minimizing the harm that might come from them?

Join the conversation with Franklin Institute Chief Bioscientist Dr. Jayatri Das and Dr. Eric Kmiec, Director of the Gene Editing Institute at Christiana Care Health System.

The forum includes a short presentation, followed by a guided discussion on this highly relevant topic among local scientists, researchers, and community participants. The forum is recommended for age 16 and older.

For parents interested in attending, there will be a parallel workshop appropriate for children ages 7-15 on DNA and gene editing facilitated by The Franklin Institute’s science educators during the forum.  Parents are invited to register their children for this hands-on workshop while they attend the forum.
Light refreshments will be provided.

The forum and workshop are free with museum admission; advance registration is required as capacity is limited. Call 215.448.1200 or email [email protected] with first and last name along with number of adults and children attending.
