April 15 – May 20
Intertemporalist Steampunk Exhibit Today’s “Steampunk” cultural aesthetic draws from the parallel social angst of early industrializing 19th Century’s ‘awe struck’ impact of the overwhelming power of stream-driven technologies, and 21st Century overwhelming digital-internet revolution impacting us today. Steampunk’s sensibilities are constantly evolving, with adaptations through all the arts.
Showcasing selected Phoenix area artist’s fantastical sculpture, paintings, illustrations, photography and costume “props,” all playfully juxtaposing histories and reconfigured technologies.
Tickets: $12 available at door
Door opens at 8. Show starts promptly at 9 p.m.
