Every year CMS members bring their favorite projects to display at the show. It's an amazing mix of media, styles, scales, and themes. There are carved eggs filled with vingettes, entire houses, all different kinds of shops, Ohio State Fair winners, and more. Below is a sample of the more than 150 items on display this year.
The People's Choice Award
Every year attendees get to vote for their favorite exhibit. This year the winner was a nook book library complete with full size books on either side. What a perfect addition to any book shelf! And the winner will definitely need to make room among the shelves to display her People's Choice Award trophy.
FRAZIER TELEVISIONS SET DESIGNS
Have you heard of or seen the hit television show Frazier? It was a spin off from the hit television show Cheers. Running for 11 seasons, from 1993 to 2004, Frasier was critically acclaimed. The series and the cast won thirty-seven Primetime Emmy Awards, a record at the time for a scripted series. It also won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series five times.
The stars, Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves, David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin, John Mahoney, and Dan Butler haven't been able to be shrunk to one inch scale but with exacting attention to detail two of most popular series sets, Frazier's apartment and the local coffee shop, have been recreated in amazing miniature. CMS was lucky enough to have them as a special engagement at the show where they were on display for all to see.
