ATTENTION TEENAGED ÆTHERNAUTS, SKYMINERS, AIR PIRATES AND ANACHROPOLOGISTS!

Like Steampunk?

Me too!

Have you ever wondered what an alternate Minnesota would look like? A steam-powered world of intrepid explorers, polished locomotives, bustles, spats, strict adherence to tea time, automatons and teleautomatic robot servants, and high altitude dirigibles? A world where every child knows the name of Nicola Tesla and has his daguerreotype image framed above their pillows? What would our state look like in a steampunk world?

Wonder no more!

This Saturday is Teen and Family day at the Minnesota History Center. The theme: Alternate history – Steampunk, Science Fiction, Magical Realism and other disruptions of the space-time continuum. And it’s gonna be awesome! There will be an interactive Steampunk mystery with the Red Ribbon Society, a steampunk fashion workshop with Leonardo’s Basement, and Bad September will be playing.

And I’ll be there too, along with writers Lyda Morehouse and Kelly McCullough for the Ask-A-Writer panel.

Grab your goggles and top hats, button up your duster jackets, tighten your corsets and be sure to holster your Vapor Particulator Ray Gun. It’ll be fun!

  1. Who does the picture of the airship? I absolutely love it and would like to commision the artist.

  2. I wish I knew! I nabbed this image from io9, on their The Coolest Airship Pictures You’ve Ever Seen post (http://io9.com/5909263/the-coolest-airship-pictures-youve-ever-seen), and they listed the artist as unknown. It was also on the MN Historical Society’s page, but it just linked back to the io9 post. If you’re really curious (or if you’re super serious about getting a kick-butt artist some work…. and really, I think we can all get behind that plan) you can contact the editors at io9.com. I’ll bet they’ve figured it out by now, or they’ll know how to.
