Announcement video

Some of the galleries will not only enlighten visitors on the connections between science and imagination through artifacts, but will also allow visitors to explore questions about history in creative interactive exhibits.

Some of our Artifacts include:

    *Full scale replica of The Time Machine (created by Rob Niosi) from the 1960 George Pal movie, The Time Machine.
    *Replica of The Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
    *Original movie props and concept art.
    *Vintage books, comics and fashion
    *Video displays featuring interviews with prominent Steampunk scholars, authors, artists, and scientists!
    *Steampunk-themed art, sculpture, jewelry, fashion, photography and inventions!

Aeronaut Productions (a small team of artists, designers, and educators) have been given the unique task of beating the odds, and attempting to bring this exhibit to life in a relatively short period of time! Please join us in this endeavor to bring something extraordinary to life!

We are raising money to help us with the following:

    *Build displays and artifact cases.
    *Complete artifact replicas for display.
    *Transport our "crown jewel" - a period-authentic replica of The Time Machine to the Muzeo.
    *Print graphics and legends for exhibit.

Greetings,

I am the President of Aeronaut Productions, and the curator of "Steampunk: History Beyond Imagination"

We are currently seeking sponsors to help us get the exhibit off the ground. Due to a narrow window of opportunity, our initial launch is fraught with peril - i.e. corporate sponsorship is proving to be problematic. We are looking for people willing to pledge their support on our Kickstarter project @:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aeronautproductions/steampunk-history-beyond-imagination-museum-exhibi

We're not just looking for large amounts - every little bit helps. PLUS we have incentives for pledges at every pledge level: pins, patches...we even have a custom pair of goggles and a custom top hat pledge level (we have our first sponsor at this level - btw).

We are ALSO looking for artists, sculptors, tailors, etc. who would like to display their work in the exhibit! If you are interested in exhibiting your work, please email us at: steampunkHBI@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!

We are THIS close to achieving our goal to make this exhibit a reality. If everyone here donated even $1, we'd be over the top tonight! Check out the link!

Looks facinating. I will definately go to the smaller opening if I can. I imagine it is to late to submit art but not to be inspired.
Just moved to LA,  I am looking for fun things to do and see.

I'm hoping to take the family this Sunday for the Grand Opening.  The League of S.T.E.A.M. and others will be there.  Looking forward to it!
