Dr. Seuss museum replaces mural after complaint
A Massachusetts museum dedicated to Dr. Seuss has replaced a mural that included a stereotype of a Chinese man.
The mural unveiled Tuesday includes illustrations from several of Dr. Seuss’ books. The original mural in the entryway of the Springfield museum featured illustrations from the author’s first children’s book, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” which included the stereotype that some found racist.
The original mural became the center of controversy when children’s authors Mike Curato, Lisa Yee and Mo Willems said they would boycott an event at the museum because of the “jarring racial stereotype.”
The decision to replace the mural drew criticism from the author’s family and the city’s mayor.
Dr. Seuss’ real name was Theodor Geisel, and he grew up in Springfield.
Motorcycle seminar at Packard museum
The National Packard Museum, 1899 Mahoning Ave., will present an educational seminar at noon Saturday. It will be a group panel discussion – “Evolution of Motorcycling” – presented by the members of the museums’ Antique Motorcycle Exhibit Committee.
This informative seminar is open to the public and free with paid admission to the museum.
The museum’s 18th annual Antique Motorcycle Exhibit, titled “The Motor,” runs through May 20. It traces the evolution of the motorcycle engine, which dates back to 1885 Germany.
The exhibit features 25 vintage American, European and Japanese motorcycles along with nine different motorcycle motors.
Exhibit highlights include the only known existing 1902 Sylvester & Jones, a highly sought after 1947 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead, and a unique 1957 Ariel “Square 4” with two crankshafts.
