Take an intimate tour of ODD BEAUTY: The Techno-Eccentric World of Steampunk Art with curator and exhibiting artist Art Donovan.

In the 10 years since this small, eccentric genre exploded to life on the internet, Steampunk has globally grown to influence virtually every form of the visual arts and design. Beginning with the re-imagined, visual language of the 19th Century Victorian Era, Steampunk now counts its inspirations as far back as the mechanical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci to the bold, streamlined locomotives of Raymond Lowey. But what gives this art form its singular identity is the artists’ visual and cultural fascination with mechanical, gear-driven technologies of the past.
