|Atlantean Squid Necklace Cabinet by 19 Moons of the Etsy Steam Team|
As usual, another great work of steampunk jewelry and art has come from a member of the Etsy Steam Team, this time, for a museum steampunk exhibit!
From 19 Moons' Facebook page:
"I am excited to be making this Ex-squidsite Nautical necklace cabinet for the upcoming Steampunk Exhibition with Jules Verne theme- here is an article featuring my piece."
The gallery will feature items that could have been on the Nautilus, Captain Nemo's wondrous submarine from the classic Jules Verne novel, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. The novel has been heralded as one of the very first steampunk novels of all time, and certainly one of the most famous. At the opening gala, there will also be an hour-long interactive, group video game in which participants will have to solve puzzles and complete tasks.
Though the process started in June of this year, there is still time to mark your calendars and see the "Nemos' Steampunk Art & Invention Gallery." According to Steampuffin.com:
"WHERE: Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Interactive Entertainment Experience (located in Patriot Place’s North Lifestyle Center, Foxboro MA, adjacent to Gillette Stadium)
WHEN: Saturday, February 5, 2011 from 5:00PM to 12:00 Midnight
COST: FREE if you are wearing any Steampunk costume (prize for best ‘Nautilus or Nemo themed’ costume)"
They say that the art exhibit will be available for viewing online in November. The pieces featured in the exhibit will be for sale for $1000 - 5000 and up, and all will be photographed and made into a book Steampunk Design and Innovations, which will be available for purchase in 2012.
And last but not least, if you would like to exhibit and sell your work at Nemo’s Steampunk Art and Invention Gallery, you may call Bruce Rosenbaum at 781-784-0250 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Congrats to 19 Moons on creating a beautiful steampunk work of art, and on getting some well-deserved accolades.
