New Sole of the Old Machine: Steampunk Brockton

Reimagining the City of Shoes

Exhibition Website

Sep 10 2016 - Jan 1 2017

New Sole of the Old Machine spotlights 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 re-purposing of objects and materials around us to examine the past while re-imagining 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 pre-eminent authority on Steampunk.
