Steampunk Progressive Dinner and Ball coming to Center for Arts & History

LEWISTON, Idaho - Tickets are on sale for the upcoming Steampunk Progressive Dinner and Ball in downtown Lewiston on Saturday, October 25.  Proceeds benefit the development of Children's Art Programs at LCSC’s Center for Arts & History (CAH), who is sponsoring the event.

It all begins at 5 p.m. with “Sippers and Dippers” at The Blue Lantern, moving on to the Orchid Room in Morgan’s Alley for a “5 Gear – Sit Down and Dirty Dinner” catered by the Wayback Cafe and live entertainment by the Lewiston Civic Theater cast of Young Frankenstein.  It concludes with the ball “Sweets, Sounds and Gowns” at CAH, featuring art, music, a silent auction, fashion show, and dessert provided by As You Like It Cakes.

The ball is also the opening of a new exhibit, Reclaimed Revolution, featuring award-winning professional artist Jen Fuller of Portland, along with juried works of artists from various mediums, including reclaimed objects or works themed with “Victorian Futurism” or “Steam Powered Assemblage,” as well as Steampunk inspired fashion and accessories.

Tickets are $25 for “Sippers and Dippers and Dinner,” $25 for the ball only, or $40 for all three.  For LCSC students, tickets are $20 for dinner, $20 for just the ball, and $30 for both. Tickets can be purchased at the LCSC Center for Arts & History, 415 Main Street, Lewiston or by calling 208.792.2243.

Costumes are encouraged, but not necessary.  All ages are welcome.

According to Debi Fitzgerald, CAH director, Steampunk is as an art aesthetic which captures a genre of fictional literature such as the science fiction of Jules Verne, and mixing imaginary steam-powered contraptions, clockworks and fantasy gadgets – all through the lens of a particular time period, such as the Victorian era.
