Searching for a perfect complement to the obligatory annual viewing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Head to Yorkville, where the Liss Gallery is hosting a touring exhibition of the work of beloved American cartoonist and storyteller Theodor Seuss Geisel—that is, Dr. Seuss. The Art of Dr. Seuss consists of more than 50 limited-edition prints (not originals) released by the artist’s estate. Items on display will include images of preliminary sketches from Seuss classics like The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham and The Lorax. Meanwhile, prints of items from the artist’s surreal “secret art” collection will provide a darker, more nightmarish take on his career. The exhibition continues until Christmas Eve. Admission is free, but offerings from un-Grinchlike donors will support Autism Speaks.

Dec. 6–24. PWYC. Liss Gallery. 140 Yorkville Ave., 416-787-9872, lissgallery.com.
