Steampunk – the Automotive Museum’s version of the literary and artistic genre. The Museum has collaborated with local artists, Starburner Galactic Courier Service, to interpret this growing art form through automotive design and technology. Several vehicles built in Steampunk style will be on exhibit including a few of the Museum’s own vehicles modified in the Steampunk genre by our local ‘makers’. In addition, numerous art objects will be on view from clothing and everyday functional pieces, to graphic art and the music of the genre. The artists come from San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Steampunk is a genre which came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s and incorporates elements of science fiction , speculative fiction, fantasy , and alternate history . The settings are usually related to steam power and reflect the trappings of the early industrial revolution era prior to the implementation of electrical power. The term steampunk began as a tongue in cheek  variant of “cyberpunk “.
