“What’s a diorama?” the dimwitted Ralph Wiggum once asked on “The Simpsons.”

It’s not just a shoe box with a glorified book report inside. A diorama is a piece of three-dimensional art that pretty much anyone can make. And that’s the idea behind Diorama-o-rama, a Texas Theatre fundraiser Oct. 10.

12009698_1623486564573630_6381774605589246775_nA few artists and designers will offer their dioramas in a live auction during the party, from 4-8 p.m. at Jefferson Tower Events.

But the rest of us get to show our creative sides too.

Anyone can offer a diorama, or more than one, for the silent auction, and it’s free to enter. But you have to inform the organizers by Monday, Oct. 5. Email with the following information: First and last name, email/website and cell number.

Get busy because even though this is the fourth Diorama-o-rama, it doesn’t come around very often. The last one, which raised $7,500 for Cafe Momentum, was in 2012. You don’t want to have FoMo for three years.

Here are some pics from the last event. And here are all the details on the Oct. 10 event.
