Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden

Last Friday, we visited The Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield. Massachusetts. Theodore Seuss Geisel was born in Springfield in 1904. Sculptor, Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, who is also Geisel's step daughter, created the sculpture for the Springfield Library and Museums Association, located in the heart of the city. Springfield is in Western Massachusetts on the Connecticut River.

Thanks for sharing these lovely sculptures. I didn't know about this museum. Good ol' beloved Dr. Seuss!

Glad you liked it Anne Marie. Just so you know, this sculpture garden is small - but worth the trip, I think. We were on our way to the Big E. (Eastern States Exposition) But, this was certainly a highlight of the trip. Next time, I'd try to time it so that we could go into the Art Museum there. There are a group of museums surrounding the sculpture garden.
