Louisiana's World Steampunk Exposition
"So, what is this World Steampunk Exposition and Makers Fair, you ask? We like to think of it as a trade show and celebration for the inventive and creative with a love for all things Victorian and Science Fiction thrown in for good measure. The World Steampunk Exposition and Makers Fair is patterned off the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair or the 1884 World Cotton Exposition that was held in New Orleans. At these events, nation’s from around the world exhibited in their own showcases or pavilions. Each year the World Steampunk Exposition will be uniquely themed as a representation of a showcase that is set in a steampunk alternate Universe.
Louisiana's World Steampunk Exposition and Makers Fair is a trade show and celebration for the inventive and creative with a love for all things Victorian and Science Fiction thrown in for good measure. The event will be held at Home2Suites in Lafayette, LA from March 10-12."
As a visual artist, I am thrilled to be participating in the upcoming World's Steampunk Exposition in Lafayette, Louisiana. This event is a celebration of all things steampunk, and I can't wait to showcase my artwork alongside other talented artists and vendors.
For those who may be unfamiliar with steampunk, it is a subculture that draws inspiration from the Victorian era, with a twist of science fiction and fantasy. The genre imagines a world where steam power reigns supreme, and technology is both advanced and ornate. It's a world of cogs, gears, and clockwork devices, where airships soar and adventurers roam.
Louisiana's World Steampunk Exposition is an opportunity for fans of the genre to come together and celebrate their shared passion. For those who have never heard of steampunk, this is a chance to explore a familiar and fantastical world and discover the unique creativity that the genre has to offer.
As a visual artist, I will be selling artwork inspired by the world of steampunk. I create intricate and detailed pieces that feature clockwork devices, fantastical creatures, and Victorian-inspired clothing and accessories. At the expo, you will be able to see my artwork up close and personal, and even purchase a piece to take home with you.
But the expo isn't just about the art. There will also be a range of other exciting activities and events to enjoy. From costume contests to panel discussions, there's something for everyone at the World's Steampunk Exposition. You'll be able to meet other fans of the genre, learn about the history and culture of steampunk, and immerse yourself in a world of imagination and wonder.
