Winter in Wonderland
Winter 2016/2017Located at MOA's Marjorie Park
MOA has converted the above pictured Victorian architectural element, located at our Marjorie Park location at Fiddler's Green, to a new art diorama. This new exhibition space is a unique, creative space that will feature seasonal window displays for all to enjoy.
About the Display
"Winter in Wonderland" by Scott M. Soffa & Benjamin Pound, SMS Studio - Denver CO
In an illustrative style on board, this 8' x 14' diorama features the Queen of Hearts and White Rabbit original bronze maquettes by Harry Marinsky (1994) as Old Man Winter's chill envelopes the Queen's castle in icy fiber optic lighting.
The original bronze maquette "Queen of Hearts" by Harry Marinsky (1994) is the focal point of the scene and the "White Rabbit" is on view as well. You can view the full scale bronzes by Marinsky along with the rest of the "Alice in Wonderland" series in Marjorie Park located just behind the diorama.
What you hear as you view the installation is the complete unabridged book "Alice In Wonderland" as read by Australian actor Cyril Ritchard (1 December 1898 – 18 December 1977) recorded in the late 1960's for Wonderland Records. Additional music on the 6 long playing vinyl album set is by Alec Wilder. The set was packaged for Radio Shack.
This is the second in a series of seasonal displays planned for the new diorama. Watch a Video of the installation here.
