At the AFA Gallery NYC: Sendak and Steampunkinectics
View the work of the American author and illustrator who created such classics as Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen.
"An exhibition of more than forty kinetic sculptures by eighteen artists inspired by and entrenched in the Steampunk aesthetic. Some functional, some frivolous, and all fantastical, the works in this exhibition include lighting, furniture, time machines, submarines, airships, musical instruments, gizmos and gadgets. At the centerpiece of the show is the “Steampunk Wedding Time Capsule,” by Bruce Rosenbaum and Gary Sullivan, an extraordinary, functional work of art designed to enrich its owner’s day-to-day life."
