Connecting Point: Steampunk Exhibition

By WGBY

Steampunk is an artistic and design subculture which combines science fiction, history, fantasy, and the Victorian era into a fanciful blend. The term originated during the early 1980s when Steampunk was used to describe a fantasy world where steam-powered machines and technology of the 19th century merge with elements of contemporary time. Currently on exhibit at the Springfield Museums is Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City.

Bruce Rosenbaum, nationally acknowledged expert on steampunk, is curating the project and talked with Connecting Point’s Aliz Koletas about the event.
