North Vernon will host its first ever Steampunk Art Show and Festival, Saturday September 15, 10am to 10pm.
A Steam Locomotive Train will be offering rides, 3 bands will perform throughout the day/evening, a “Steampunk inspired” Reception/Ball will be held, Saturday from 4-5pm celebrating the various artists works, as well as an antique car show and food trucks will be available.
Steampunk Art is to be said to be a genre of creative arts that blends yesteryear (particularly Victorian England or the American Wild West) with technology. This type of work uses gadgets and scrap parts that most might see as junk, but artists see as fodder for creative modifications. The Park theater will be selling train tickets starting July 1.
