Southern Maine Steampunk Fair External Event Page
Kennebunk, Maine
Steampunk often features anachronistic technologies or “retro-futuristic” inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them. The era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, invention and art all play into the visual culture of Steampunk. Technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. At the Southern Maine Steampunk Fair, you will find crafters of Victorian-futuristic art and crafts; be entertained by wandering performers; take part in Victorian lawn games; and discover much more. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged and celebrated!
ADMISSION: $2.00 per person (FREE for members). Tickets are valid for entry into the Brick Store Museum, the Program Center, and the outdoor campus of the Brick Store Museum. Lunch is included in your registration fee.
For more information, please call 207-985-4802 or email info@brickstoremuseum.org.

The Periphery Project: Walking the Bay - Artist Reception External Event Page
Sausalito, California
In February 2015 Lisa Kairos began The Periphery Project, walking a part of the San Francisco Bay Trail each week. As she walked, she photographed the bay and the shoreline, and posted the images online. The act of walking itself serves as a physical tracing, or drawing, of the bay. The bay is the geographical center of our lives here in the Bay Area, and its perimeter is a charged outline of a place. It is where earth, water, and sky meet, where development meets conservation, and where evidence of the past is there, if you look closely. She takes the visual influences from these walks into her studio, and develops art works based on the shapes, colors, lines, and atmosphere of the bay. Her show will share encaustic paintings, drawings and water media on hand-cut paper, and photographic prints, all products of these walks. You can follow the Periphery Project on Instagram (@lkairos), or visit her website at www.lisakairos.com. Exhibition Dates: August 2?September 17 Artist?s Reception: August 6, 1?3 pm.

Civil War Lecture Series: Fugitive Slaves and the Use of Steamships and Small Crafts to Escape in the 1850s External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Underground Railroad is a well-known topic within American society, but the maritime routes used by fugitive slaves to escape are often overlooked. By re-examining William Still's The Underground Railroad Records and using relevant archival material relating to the port of Philadelphia, two main uses of waterways becomes apparent; the individual hiding on commercial passenger steamers and captains of small vessels bringing groups of slaves northward. This presentation focuses on one steamer, the City of Richmond, as its career parallels the issue of the fugitive slave between the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 and the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861.

Birds of the World Gallery External Event Page
Cambridge, Massachusetts
See the newly reopened Birds of the World gallery at Harvard Museum of Natural History which has over 750 specimens from 200 families on display!Boasting over 10,000 species, birds are the most diverse land vertebrates on the planet, surpassing the biological diversity of mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Thriving in every corner of the globe, from tropical forests to polar ice caps, birds vary tremendously in habit and size from diminutive bee hummingbirds to towering 10-foot-high elephant birds, flightless giants that roamed the African island country of Madagascar until the 17th century. In celebration of these beaked and feathered marvels, the Harvard Museum of Natural History opened the new Birds of the World gallery. On the balcony encircling Great Mammal Hall, this bright, newly-remodeled gallery captures the staggering diversity of birds with many hundreds of stunning specimens representing over 200 different bird families. New exhibit displays reveal the very latest in surprising scientific discoveries about the evolution of these modern dinosaur descendants.

Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt from their noses. Dance with tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles from their natural habitats. // Around the archipelago, converging cross-winds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopic plankton to Galapagos sharks. “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature’s ingenuity, all brought to life in stunning 3D. You’re invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature.
