From the official press release:

Pump Project is pleased to present THE TESLA PROJECT, an all-day extravaganza honoring the inventor Nikola Tesla, at their Satellite building in East Austin. This event marks the second annual TESLA PROJECT, dedicated to celebrating the genius of Nicola Tesla, a visionary scientist and engineer whose electrical inventions transformed the world. His most famous inventions include: AC power, the induction motor, fluorescent lighting, and radio.

There will be:

  • live music during the day, including ArcAttack as the headlining act. This performance-based band uses Tesla coils in their act as well as a Faraday suit. ArcAttack was featured on the NBC 2010 program of America’s Got Talent.

  • a Tesla-inspired art show, juried by Debra Broz, who was recently selected for Austin Museum of Art’s "New Art In Austin: 15 to Watch."

  • live screen printing by Twin Villain.

  • two films, All About Tesla and The History of Nikola Tesla – a Short Story, shown throughout the day.

  • two Tesla Roadsters -- zero-emissions cars that can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

  • performance artist Professor Conrad and group with THEGIANTBRAIN.

  • a team from Bits, Bytes & Bots with robots and computer activities for children.

  • Lyman Grant, Dean of Arts and Humanities at ACC, reading his Tesla-inspired poem.

  • plenty of food and drink vendors.

THE TESLA PROJECT is for all ages, free (except for a small charge to see ArcAttack) and open to the public.
