Closer, Closer: Show and Tell
Saturday April 9, 2022 | 1:30 pm – 3 pm
Join MOA for a presentation by local miniature maker Michael Soganic, followed by a show-and-tell where you can present your own miniatures.
Presented in conjunction with the student exhibition, Closer Closer: Miniatures, Models, and Their Stories, curated by the students of Anthropology 431: Museum Practice and Curatorship. This interactive exhibition explores the stories behind everyday miniatures.
Bring your own miniatures that are meaningful to you, and share your stories with others.
Michael Soganic is a Vancouver-based miniature maker, and self-described model train nerd. He has built a series of miniatures based on Vancouver’s most beloved buildings, stores, and venues, such as the Vernon Drive Grocery and Little Mountain Gallery, and posts his works often on his Instagram page.
