A Time for Love by Gary Lang; from the FOTM Marking Time Clock Auction

Steampunk is a broad culture that embraces alternative history, the industrial revolution and time travel.  Dada is the avant-garde art movement that rose in reaction to rigid European traditions and the horrors of World War I.  The fusion of these two often-fanciful genres makes for a fun escape during turbulent times. Magician Matt Marcy will emcee the affair of performances, great art, online auction and amusing curiosities.

All auction items and other purchases will be available for a scheduled, distanced pickup at the FOTM offices parking lot in Ventura the week after the gala.  

Distanced protocols will be used to ensure your safety.  Other arrangements may also be made.
