Saturday a special unveiling of a diorama entitled “The Battle of the Rosebud,” took place at the Sheridan County Museum. Attended by over 50 people, interim director Sarah Ligocki explains why this diorama is so important.
Tom Warnke teamed up with artist Connie Robinson, plus numerous volunteers, to create the diorama. This was Warnke's 19th diorama, taking him 595 hours to complete and needless to say, this project was a challenge.
Saturday was a proud, proud day for Warnke.
Connie Robinson painted the seven foot mural behind the diorama. It was unlike anything she's tried before.
The painting matches the scenery where the battle was fought, but it also was a challenge in perspectives.
The Sheridan County Museum is located off the 5th Street Exit at 850 Sibley Circle.
