According to an article in The Hartford Courant, one can find the bubbling brains of Edgar Allan Poe and Amelia Earhart at the Twain House along with other steampunk oddities in a new exhibit titled "The Steampunk Bizarre Exhibit" that opened at the beginning of this month:
...Middletown artist [Joey Marsocci], whose professional alter ego is Dr. Grymm, is the curator of the new exhibit at the Hartford landmark, "Steampunk Bizarre: The Unknown." Work by Marsocci and 20 other steampunk artists from around the world will be featured in the 147-piece exhibit...
...[Marsocci] said the appeal of steampunk — which is characterized by elaborate engineering — is a rejection of the overly sleek aesthetic of contemporary design.
