Museum to exhibit hand-built dioramas
The Chase County Museum will have an exhibition of several dioramas built by Harold and Judy Harmon of Champion this weekend.
The Harmons began building dioramas about 15 years.
A diorama is a hand-built, three-dimensional representation of a scene.
The couple have built six dioramas so far.
“Harold is a big fan of American Indians and a talented artist,” Judy said.
One diorama shows the original farm/ranch home Harold’s grandfather homesteaded south of Champion.
Another is Champion’s main street during the 1920s-30s.
“The Champion diorama took three winters to build and is 6 feet by 10 feet in size,” Judy said.
The Champion diorama others will be on display at the museum from 1 to 4 p.m. during regular museum hours.
The Harmons will be on hand to answer any questions
Refreshments will be available.
