The exquisite adventure

Scottsdale Public Art
Woo hoo! Steampunk is coming to Scottsdale!

And not just Scottsdale, but the Scottsdale Civic Center Public Library!

Steampunk: The Exquisite Adventure is scheduled to run
Oct. 25, 2013 – Jan. 28, 2014

The essential social nature of Steampunk is featured in this exhibition of artwork, artifacts, costumes, characters, and adventurous stories. Local, national, and international Steampunks share their creations—building a world of romance, adventure, imagination, and beauty amid the timeless themes of exploration and investigation.

This exhibition was co-curated by Scottsdale Public Art Collections and Exhibition Manager, Wendy Raisanen, and artist and Steampunk enthusiast, Susan Rubin. Susan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Wood Sculpture with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Arizona State University. She was introduced to Steampunk by the crew of Neverwas Haul, a three- story Victorian art car which was created in 2006. Neverwas Haul has been to Burning Man several times, and has developed a life of its own as one of the ultimate visions of a Steampunk art vehicle. She has attended San Diego Comicon every year since 2004, and built her first Steampunk costume in 2008. Susan was the creator of the Award Winning audience engagement music series, "Sound in the Ground," for Mesa Contemporary Arts, which featured live music, performance art, and interactive art experiences, and created art experiences for the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts "Sunday Affair," and Scottsdale Public Art's "Public Art Day." She has worked in set design and costume design for theater, film and television, in Canada and the US.


What I don't understand is why I, Steampunk Addie, was not invited to participate. Momma and I live less than two miles from there!

Oh well, I'll just have to go and show them what they missed.

The Scottsdale Civic Center Library is located at 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

  1. This sounds really neat! I'm too far away to go, but I shared the information with a friend who is in the area and asked her to spread the news too.
