WHAT: This holiday season Sears on State will display the artwork from Look-Alikes - an award-winning book by artist Joan Steiner. The displays will feature six dioramas that mimic a miniature metropolis that is meticulously crafted out of everyday objects from mousetraps to milk bones. State Street shoppers will have a great time identifying the hidden objects in the scenes (a chair made out of an oven mitt; a window made out of teabags). WHO: Joan Steiner is a graduate of Barnard College and a self-taught artist. Her unique three-dimensional creations have appeared in the New York Times, Games Magazine, Nickelodeon and Sesame Street Magazine. The recipient of numerous art and design awards, including a Society of Illustrators Award and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, Ms. Steiner lives in Claverack, New York. WHERE: Sears on State 2 N. State St. (NW corner of State and Madison streets) WHEN: Wednesday, November 7 through Wednesday, January 2 VISUAL: Three-dimensional dioramas built from more than 100 everyday objects depicting whimsical holiday and small-town scenes highlighted with photographs from the book.
