Cheap$kate: FREE events in NYC this week
‘The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss’
Oh the places you’ll go to eat some green eggs and ham.
Meeting cats in hats and guys named Sam.
Tonight you should head down to POP in the city
To see private works that are secret but pretty.
See how we did that? Pretty clever right? Now you should venture out to POPmidtown to check out “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss” exhibit, on view Thursday night in the atrium of the Citicorp Building. The exhibit provides an inside peek into Seuss’s legendary nearly 70-year artistic career with some rarely seen works that have been private until now. (Thursday night, 5-9 p.m., FREE, POP International Galleries Midtown, Atrium of Citicorp Building, 153 E. 53rd St., 212-533-4262, rsvp@popinternational .com, popinternational.com)
Get your fill of the wild life with these 20 large-scale photos of Asia, Africa and North America’s wildlife — including bears, eagles, monkeys, giraffes and horses — photographed in the animals’ natural habitats by Japanese photog Maekawa, winner of the first Nikkei National Geographic Photo Prize. Maekawa’s first U.S. exhibition showcases his skills, from intimate close-ups of a polar bear with her cubs to spanning panoramas of African sunsets. The exhibit runs through June 29. (Opening/artist reception Thursday night, 6-8 p.m., FREE, Steven Kasher Gallery, 521 W. 23rd St., 212-966- 3978, stevenkasher.com)
