Here's news for everyone with resident or visiting children to entertain during the holidays and for the many fans of Joan Steiner's beloved Look-Alikes® books. Ten of the original dioramas, meticulously crafted by Steiner from everyday objects and various edibles and photographed for the books, are now on display in different locations throughout the Albany Institute of History & Art.
The miniature scenes offer an engaging challenge for all to find and identify the objects used in their composition. There are reportedly at least a hundred in each scene. The motto of Look-Alikes® is, after all, "The more you look, the more you see."
The exhibition of Steiner's dioramas, created in her studio here in Hudson, opened at the Albany Institute, 125 Washington Avenue, on November 25 continues through January 29. Click here for more information about the exhibition and for directions and museum hours.
