We are putting the S.T.E.A.M. in Steampunk. Join us as we mix up art and technology for a day of embracing a “do it yourself” attitude. Express your individuality as you dig into S.T.E.A.M. and Steampunk-inspired activities with a punk rock edge. Experiment with printmaking and wearables, explore contemporary art in the Gallery, and enjoy exciting performances. The day ends with our feel-good family dance party hosted by Party Like Brooklyn, Baby!
