I am a science writer and independent museum consultant who is interested in the intersection of art and science. I am also fascinated by the history and philosophy of science. Check this blog for notes and updates about cool art-and-science miscellany.
I just learned that an exhibition featuring artwork by Dr. Seuss is now coming to Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. I think this is a brilliant idea. When I was a kid, I used to love reading Dr. Seuss's books, and part of that love stemmed from Seuss's fanciful creations and wild imagination. I would very much like to see more explorations of fictional creatures in museums: maybe visitors would be more stimulated and develop a greater interest in biology.
