Free and open to the public
Join the Cartoon Art Museum as we host Karen Luk, author and illustrator of Steampunk ABCs for a brief presentation. In the spirit of Luk’s book, the Museum encourages guests to dress in steampunk attire, take photos in front of our custom backdrop, and enjoy music and tea provided by Samovar Tea Lounge. In addition, visitors will be encouraged to create and watch their own zoetrope cartoon. Luk will be available to sign and discuss her work with visitors. This event is free and open to the public.
