Hannibal is hosting its first Steampunk Festival August 30th and 31, 2014 and we are "gearing up" for a weekend of fun and fantasy.
It's a celebration of history, art, science and fantasy, all drawing inspiration from that richly textured and highly decorative period of time we know as the Victorian era.
Several of the gallery artists have worked on Steampunk art for the Festival. Margaret Fessenden's Steampunk dolls are the perfect embodiment of this movement. And Andrea Linderman's "Time King" photo captures the power and beauty of the Industrial Revolution.
So be sure and visit Hannibal for the Great River Steampunk Fesitval and join in the fun!
