New Sole of the Old Machine: Steampunk Brockton–Reimagining the City of Shoes will spotlight Steampunk, a highly popular art design genre that asks the question–What if yesterday’s innovators had access to today’s technologies? Steampunk, in general, includes the repurposing of objects and materials around us to examine the past while reimagining a path to a brighter future. Fuller Craft Museum’s exhibition will focus on Brockton’s esteemed history as a shoe manufacturer. The exhibition is being curated by Bruce Rosenbaum, the preeminent authority on Steampunk.
