Our Top 12 Photos from Diorama-O-Rama
Jennifer Dunn and Cara Crossley, "They say her name was Jasmine" This teeny tiny tin box of adultery made my brain explode.
This Saturday, things got ree--eeee---eeeal dorky at Bolt Studios as Diorama-O-Rama gathered followers of the dark, nerdly arts for a day of craftivism. The event raises loot for local charities, with this installment's kitty getting kicked toward Café Momentum, a group that teaches culinary skills to at-risk youth in the Dallas community. If those kids promote themselves in the work force as well as they did on Saturday, tenured chefs had better start sweating. I couldn't turn around without encountering a smiling kid with a tray, eager to hype the organization that he or she proudly represented.
The event calls people to create dioramas and enter them as prizes for live and silent auction. (Thanks, Nikki Lott for making my coveted winning: a nature scene with verbally profane, alcoholic birds!) The event raised more than $7500 bucks for Café Momentum and brought hundreds of folks together for a great day party. Cheers, gals on a job well done. Here's a photo series of our favorite pieces; I apologize for my gawd-awful photography skills.
Crystal McKibbon, "Dino Dinner" A closer look at the dino's belly friends. By Tony Bones Liz Kerrigan, "The Artists" Isabela Nojcik, Untitled Daniel and Chandra Blaylock, "Calataco" "Papa Bear Rawlings: Can we have a taco bridge?" Jayme Nourallah Bryan Gooding, "Tiny Spoxes-Proto" Bruce Lee Webb A tinier me would go here for palm readings, exclusively. Taro-Kun, "Untitled" "Man, don't even bother comin' out. Her parents put curtains up." Tad Dowdy, "The Proposition" Amazing. Jackson Lease, "The Little Room in my Head" I have one of these, too, but instead of smart stuff, there's just a lonely monkey bashing cymbals together.
