Additional carved musicians to be unveiled in Harmony


Fri, Nov 8th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Features

The city of Harmony, Minn. is about to enjoy the company of musicians. Three additional wood carved musicians will be joining the Czechoslovakian Concertina Player which was dedicated in 2009 and was placed on the corner of Main and Center Street in Harmony.

The musicians are the work of artist Stanley “Slim” Maroushek who has a vision of carving five musicians in total each in costume representing the different nationalities found in southeastern Minnesota.

An unveiling of the three newest creations will be held on November 16, 2013 at 1 p.m. in the cancer park in Harmony. A German tuba player, a saxophone player from Belgium, and a bass fiddler from the Netherlands will soon be permanent fixtures near the visitor’s center, grocery store, and cancer park in Harmony for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The project is made possible by a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council and support was also received by the City of Harmony, Harmony Arts Board, Harmony EDA, Harmony Area Chamber of Commerce, Harmony Foods and Harmony Township.

Before and after the unveiling of the newest musicians Slim and his wife Anna will be giving tours of Slims Wood Carving Museum as a way of welcoming the citizens of Fillmore County to come and view over 4,000 pieces included in the museum. In lieu of the usual admission cost visitors are asked to bring donations for the Fillmore County Food Shelf. Tours of the museum will be given at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4 p.m.

Slim says that this may be the last chance for some people to come and see the museum as the contents are for sale. Slims Woodshed, however, is not for sale. Slim states he has received inquiries from Dollywood, Branson, and the House on the Rock as well as others about obtaining the largest single collection of wood carvings in the United States that Slim houses in his museum.

Keeping the collection in the Midwest so Slim could be near his family would be ideal but he states that he wants the collection to go where it will be “most appreciated” and he will probably go where the collection goes as there is a story behind each piece that no one can express except Slim.

The wood carvings in the museum have been collected from Slims travels through the years as well as donated pieces and the purchase prices have ranged from 25 cents to $25,000. Some pieces are not worth a lot while .....
